    Mary Mallon was a courageous, headstrong Irish immigrant woman who bravely came to America alone, fought hard to climb up from the lowest rung of the domestic service ladder, and discovered in herself an uncanny, and coveted, talent for cooking. Working in the kitchens of the upper class, she left a trail of disease in her wake, until one enterprising and ruthless "medical engineer" proposed the inconceivable notion of the "asymptomatic carrier" - and from then on Mary Mallon was a hunted woman.

    Where does Fever rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I think this is my favorite audiobook I've every listened to. I normally have a hard time listening to audiobooks. I get distracted and have to go back and re-listen to parts of the book, or I can only listen to about 30 minutes at a time before I'm ready to do something else. Not this book. This one had me captivated and looking for opportunities to sneak in extra listening time during my day.


    What other book might you compare Fever to and why?

    The Chaperone because it's a novel based on true events. And Sin in the Second City because it made me really feel for (and sometimes take the side of) the person who was probably doing the wrong thing.


    What does Candace Thaxton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Candace Thaxton's narration gave an added layer to the story. Her voices and accents for each character, especially Mary, made it easy to imagine that I was in the story.
