Misery to Mirth aims to change our thinking about health in early modern England. Drawing on sources such as diaries and medical texts, it shows that recovery did exist as a concept, and that it was a widely-reported event. Misery to Mirth examines how patients, and their loved ones, dealt with overcoming a seemingly fatal illness.
