The Wonder by Emma Donoghue. Published by Little, Brown

Lib Wright is a seasoned nurse, having earned her credentials with Florence Nightingale during the Crimean War. Now she’s been summoned to a small village in Ireland to look after a young girl who claims to be living on nothing more than a few spoonfuls of water, thanks to a heavenly miracle. As Lib watches her 11 year old charge for waste away she’s not sure what’s happening; is she watching a slow motion murder right in front of her eyes? Thanks to Donoghue’s skill readers will literally be in that Irish village, breathing the air and smelling the peat. An exceptional, unforgettable read
