Review: Essex County Vol. 3: The Country Nurse (Essex County #3)User Review - Goodreads
Country Nurse didn't impact me like it did so many others, but this was still a nice story. It was neat to see how Lemire tied all of the Essex County plot threads together. There was one splash page towards the end of the book that was especially cool, but I won't spoil that for anyone. Read full review

Though this final volume is a little sparse comparatively, I loved the multiple time period/generational arcs happening simultaneously. The Essex County series is a must-read, even and perhaps especially for non-graphic novel readers! Read full review
