    A fellow-teacher, like me instructing students from her home via the Internet, recommended this novel for its powerful depiction of the Influenza Pandemic (“Spanish Flu”) of 1918, the only precedent in modern history for the Coronavirus now keeping teachers and students homebound.

Mia Arceneau, an adorable very young woman from the Adirondacks, is living in Boston when the plague comes to that city. In the course of a few days she suffers horrific losses, protects an infant, sheds her rosy view of life, and begins the journey to maturity. Poignant scenes from the plague reveal the sweet depth of female friendship. A vivid view of an afflicted America is positioned between the previous tumultuous years, from the sinking of the Titanic to the First World War, and a future of exuberant prosperity and moral complexity.

    I love how Judith Slawson King wove early 20th Century history throughout the narrative... making it educational via an entertaining story. Loon Laughter ties together women's suffrage, war-time tragedy, bootlegging and more--all through one woman's perspective. A great read!
