Quarantine, John smolens
It's crew has been decimated by a fever that sweeps through the town, killing without regard - children, grandparents, parents. Only two survive from the ship and they disregard the ship quarantine and swim to shore. The only physician does his best to no avail. This is a very interesting look at life in the 1700's, and how the families lived, the rich and the poor, and how a fever like this changes their world overnight, and how greed, hate, and love happened then, as it does now.
