Years of Wonder by Geraldine Brooks.

Really worth reading. See how a village dealt with the pandemic so long ago. Inspired by the true story of Eyam, a village in the rugged hill country of England, Year of Wonders sees Anna and her fellow villagers confront the spread of disease and superstition. Plague came from London to the isolated village on an infected bolt of cloth. The year is 1666 when death reaches into every household and villagers turn from prayers to murderous witch-hunting.
