From the author of The Palace of Curiosities comes an intriguing tale of superstition, deception and love in a time of death.

Set in fourteenth century England, on the eve of the Black Death's first strike, one community's hope of survival is given new life as a mysterious woman appears in their village.

Rich in extraordinary detail, Rosie Garland's second novel weaves together the three different voices of a priest, a housekeeper and a strange arrival and explores the cost of living in a time so desperate that all you can save is love.
