Bexley Libraries Book of the Year 2021 is Hamnet by Maggie O' Farrell.
"On a summer’s day in 1596, a young girl in Stratford-upon-Avon takes to her bed with a sudden fever. Her twin brother, Hamnet, searches everywhere for help. Why is nobody at home? Their mother, Agnes, is over a mile away, in the garden where she grows medicinal herbs. Their father is working in London." Neither parent knows the tragedy that will unfold.
