A young, special-needs girl, the daughter of a beloved pediatrician, is dangerously infected with pertussis by the child of a local philanthropist and his zealous anti-vaxxer wife. The community comes to a boil as the two opposing camps face off, trying to reach an understanding without sacrificing their long-held and deeply felt principles.
Acquired immunity, the latest of Miriam Luxenberg's poignant and entertaining novels, explores this timely issue with perceptiveness and sensitivity, and leaves the reader moved, informed, and inspired.
NEW! From the author of The Exchange; Victory Garden; Field of Dreams; and many other popular titles.
