This month’s selection is:

Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell


About the book:

England, 1580. A young Latin tutor– penniless, bullied by a violent father– falls in love with an eccentric young woman who walks her family’s estate with a falcon on her shoulder and is known throughout the countryside for her unusual gifts as a healer. Agnes understands plants and potions better than she does people, but settles with her husband on Henley Street in Stratford. She becomes a fiercely protective mother and a steadfast force in the life of her young husband, whose gifts as a writer are just beginning to awaken when their young son succumbs to bubonic plague. — adapted from jacket
