Reviews for Three: A Tale of Brave Women and the Eyam Plague

“I can highly recommend it’s telling of a piece of history that we would all do well to remember. I have visited Eyam and the end of my visit left me with the same feelings as this book – a thankfulness that we have the knowledge to fight for the right to survive.

Love Reading Reviewer

What a brilliant book, beautifully and sensitively written... The book develops so well in both characterisation but also in plot – how the village isolates itself, but also how it learns from the deaths and ways to cope with the disease and the solitary existence forced upon the village. It was definitely a memorable and thought provoking read. It made me appreciate how much people gave up for the safety of others.

I shall be buying a hard copy of this to keep.

Love Reading Reviewer

“It is as if these three women, who really did exist and have now been reimagined for the COVID-19 generation, had been craving someone, another woman, to put their lives properly to bed… Jenkins conveys very well how people who live in the daily shadow of death plan neither to live nor die. Rather, they take refuge in the ordinary. Or, as she puts it: ‘People responded by doing more of what they knew how to do.’ I think Catherine, Elizabeth and Emmott – ah, especially Emmott – waited hundreds of years for the right voice to tell their story. Now, here it is.” Amazon Reviewer *****

“A heartwarming reflection of a difficult period in history…A story of hope and the strength in the most challenging of circumstances. A brilliant debut novel….” Goodreads Reviewer *****

“Bittersweet storytelling of a true story of great bravery and great love…I felt as if I was being educated and enlightened while also feeling real connection with and empathy for the characters and their sufferings and joys. What a gem of a book and surely the first of many for this new author.” Amazon Reviewer *****

“I thoroughly enjoyed the book, even shed a little tear. Absolutely fab. Thank you for the recommendation. I’m off to Eyam tomorrow.” Word-of-Mouth Reviewer

I really enjoyed this book. Having an idea of the history of the plague and how it hit Eyam, I found myself unable to put the book down as I kept reading on to see how the lives panned out for each member of the community. Inspirational women despite a year which took all they loved from them: a book I would recommend.” Amazon Reviewer *****

“From the first paragraph it is obvious that this is going to be a very special historical novel…it is not just a tragic tale, although I cried for some of the characters. It portrays the full spectrum of human lives with their loves, rites and trials…alive with brilliantly evocative scenes of domesticity impeccably researched. I know I’m going to read this again.” Amazon Reviewer *****

“A beautifully written tale of the lives of three very different courageous women and the love for their families. I couldn’t put this down wanting to watch their lives unfold. This is truly the best novel I have read in a long while. I can’t wait for more from Jennifer Jenkins” Goodreads Review *****

When You Don’t Give Up the Day Job: Religion in ‘Three: A Tale of Brave Women and the Eyam Plague’ by Jennifer Jenkins

Last autumn Female First gave me the interesting task of reflecting on seven ways my day job had influenced the writing of my debut historical fiction novel.
