It's the summer of 1793, and the Cook Coffeehouse has become a safe haven for those fleeing from the epidemic currently sweeping the streets of Philadelphia. The air is abuzz with mosquitoes and the fever, and fourteen-year-old Mattie Cook just lost her best childhood friend to the disease. Down near the city’s docks, several more have become fatally ill and the death count is only rising; however, Mattie Cook doesn't get a second to mourn her friends and loved ones who have passed away as new customers have overrun her family's small coffee shop that is located on the outskirts of town, far from the mosquito-infested river. Mattie's concerns of the epidemic are all but overshadowed by her dreams of owning her family's small business and turning it into a thriving empire, but when the fever’s grasp comes closer to home, Mattie must come to grips with the hard reality before her: not only must she fight to keep her business alive but also herself.
