This is a great choice for children and adults to enjoy together. Hannah Gold lives with her Aunt Rose and two sisters in the tenements of Boston in 1918. Her parents are off fighting WWI in Europe. Hannah has promised to take care of her little family, but how can she protect them from the deadly influenza epidemic sweeping the country? There's lots of great history to be soaked up here through a moving and exciting story. Karen Hesse has a gift for drawing sympathetic, multilayered characters. Narrator Suzanne Toren differentiates each character with voice, mood, and timing. She never rushes a character, and the older characters deliver slow cadences that make them very believable.
