Book of the Week (7-1-12)

Standard

I’ve been on a historical fiction run lately, as it’s becoming apparent with my last few book reviews.  I finished this one last week but didn’t get a chance to post the review up yet:  Accidents of Providence by Stacia Brown.  The book is set in 1600’s London and focused around an act made in an attempt to punish mother’s for infanticide.  However, the unfortunate thing about the law was that women were still punished if the infant’s death was “concealed” in any way, such as a woman burying a stillborn child.   The author pulls in rich historical information to support the fictional story.  A very well written and informative book.
