Overview

The Black Death sweeps through a medieval Sicilian village. . . revealing old secrets, true character, and stunning spiritual realities.

Sicily, 1347. It starts with a strange ship in the village harbor. That night an old man falls ill, then the baker's wife, then a street urchin. By morning half the townspeople are dead and more are dying horribly. Civic order breaks down. Wolves are moving in from the countryside. And no one has a clue what is happening or how to stop it. Not the local priest. Not the rich baron. Not the baron's proud daughter, nor the powerful knight who loves her. Certainly not the outcast healer whom many call a witch.

Only the Destroyer and the unseen Watchers know the real story, along with an unwilling visitor from another time. Mariskka recognizes the Black Death that soon will decimate Europe. But she has no voice to speak, no way to help, until she dares open her pain-hardened heart to unfathomable truth.

Richly imagined, tautly suspenseful, and deeply moving—another heart-stopping historical thriller from the author of In the Shadow of Lions.
