In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters

Excellent historical context and some nice creepy Gothic elements were strengths for this book. I’ve read other books about the Spanish Influenza outbreak and this one does a fine job detailing the hysteria and tragedy of the time.  The plot was a bit too slow, and I found some characters to be lacking in detail. Despite these concerns, I think this is a writer I will seek out in the future.
