This Time of Dying by Reina James
This book is about the Spanish Influenza outbreak in England in 1918. The story centers around Henry Speake, a local undertaker, his relationship with his family, and a widow whose company he likes to keep. Kept me reading but I didn't really see the point of some of the side stories and it doesn't really end with a conclusion. Interesting insight as to how things were handled during the epidemic and other matters of that sort, but I was sort of hoping for more.
