So enjoyed this story, as much for its twists and turns as for its horribly vivid description of life in the Middle Ages. Peddlars, magicians, and thieves abound, all vying for the coins of the terrified and the desperate. Lies are as valuable as gold to some and I didn't guess the main protagonists secret, even as I read the last pages.
Right, off to purchase another book by Karen Maitland.

An unusual story. I enjoyed it but it was very different to what I might normally read. I liked it being set in history I've not been keen to read historical novels before. I'd try another.

Format: Paperback
The novel is a kind of Canterbury Tales crossed with The Blair Witch Project. The book revolves around a group of travellers who band together to try and escape the Black Death. The company consists of the narrator who sells tat to gullible people, a bad tempered magician, a boy who thinks he's a swan (for a reason that doesn't really make sense), two musicians, a couple expecting a sprog at the worst time possible and a freaky psychic girl. There might be more, I can't really remember and if there were, they were the boring ones who don't really matter.
These people are all hiding a dark secret each (some of the secrets are a lot more boring than others) and this leads to problems as they trudge around England in the rain, getting more and more frightened.
The group seems to spend a lot of time being wet and hunting for food (every chapter it seems) and only after finishing the book, did I realise that not a lot had happened. The ending also seems to come to an unsatifactory and somewhat rushed conclusion with everything coming to a head in about 10 pages.
The story is well written however and you can tell that the author has put a lot of time and effort into research to get little details about the period correct.
