In 2048 Kivrin, a history student, travels back in time to an English village in the 14th century. Kivrin is accidentally sent back not to 1320 but to 1348 – right into the path of the Black Death. Soon, the entire village lies dying from the horrible bubonic plague that ravaged Europe.
Meanwhile, back in the future, her rescuers in Oxford battle their own deadly epidemic while trying desperately to rescue her. Plague dominates both centuries as the tension builds in this gripping novel of suffering and hope in a stunning blend of science fiction and historical reconstruction.
