Product description


a gripping read -- part historical inquiry, part novel (INDEPENDENT)

This totally absorbing book presents the best account ever written about the worst event to have ever befallen the British Isles (Simon Winchester)

The author is praised as a masterly social historian and the book as colourful as an episode of Midsomer Murders (FINANCIAL TIMES)

Conveys with great effectiveness the intensity of medieval English devotions and their deep preoccupation with the business of dying. Reading this book I was reminded time and again of the Tibetan Book of the Dead (Will Self EVENING STANDARD)

John Hatcher, a distinguished economic historian, sets out to attempt something new: the describe the plague in terms of one of these hard-hit communities... more than most of the purely historical accounts have given us (LITERARY REVIEW)

the sense of creeping doom, panic and rampant superstition is conveyed with a novelist's skill (GUARDIAN)

A compelling tale of ordinary people faced with a horror beyond imagining (SUNDAY BUSINESS POST)

Book Description

How the people of a typical English village lived and died in the worst epidemic in history.
