I love studying the Spanish influenza. Something that bothered me was the improper use of the word "epidemic," like on the front cover. The Spanish flu was a pandemic, which is a clear distinction. I liked seeing how Fiona dealt with the pandemic and all the things of the time period. I thought the marriage at the end was odd. The epilogue wasn't entirely fulfilling as Fiona was writing for someone who doesn't end up being who she intended. I also felt like the historical note should have focused on the pandemic worldwide and not just in Canada. Also, the older death estimation was stated.
