Rating: ★★★★½

This historical fiction book was great! Mary Mallon is the deadliest cook in America, and most of the houses Mary worked for, one or more people in that house caught typhoid fever soon after Mary cooked a meal for them but mostly it happened when she made her famous homemade ice cream with peaches on top. Dr. George Soper became aware of this and accused her of being the cause of these epidemics. If you like historical fiction this book would be a great choice for you!
