Publisher's Summary

When Isabel's Yorkshire village is devastated by the Black Death, it seems that the world is ending in horror and fear.

But for the survivors of the terrible plague, a new and freer society will rise from the destruction of the feudal system that enslaved her family.

A powerful historical novel from one of today's most exciting young writers.

Humanising the Black Death

A well written, heartbreaking account of the human side of the Black Death. Listened to this with a thirteen-year-old as part of a history set text.

This is not just for the young - a thought-provoking novel for all ages teen upward.

Novel of the plague

If you liked "Year of Wonders" by Geraldine Brooks, this won't disappoint. This was well written, for any age.
