Abstract:

The Plague and I tells how Betty MacDonald learned that she had tuberculosis - then a terrifying killer - and must enter a sanatorium for treatment. Her life was in upheaval: what would become of her children while she recovered - or if she didn't? But Betty MacDonald had the ability (and experience) to face up to adversity.
