From Fever 1793

Wheres Polly? I asked as I dropped the bucket down the well. Did you pass by the blacksmiths?

I spoke with her mother, with Mistress Logan, Mother answered softly, looking at her neat rows of carrots.

And? I waved a mosquito away from my face.

It happened quickly. Polly sewed by candlelight after dinner. Her mother repeated that over and over, she sewed by candlelight after dinner. And then she collapsed.

I released the handle and the bucket splashed, a distant sound.

Matilda, Pollys dead.

August 1793. Fourteen-year-old Mattie Cook is ambitious, adventurous, and sick to death of listening to her mother. Mattie has plans of her own. She wants to turn the Cook Coffeehouse into the finest business in Philadelphia, the capital of the new United States.

But the waterfront is abuzz with reports of disease. Fever spreads from the docks and creeps toward Matties home, threatening everything she holds dear.

As the cemeteries fill with fever victims, fear turns to panic, and thousands flee the city. Then tragedy strikes the coffeehouse, and Mattie is trapped in a living nightmare. Suddenly, her struggle to build a better life must give way to something even more important — the fight to stay alive.

In 1793 Philadelphia, sixteen-year-old Matilda Cook, separated from her sick mother, learns about perseverance and self-reliance when she is forced to cope with the horrors of a yellow fever epidemic.
