Product description

A classic time-slip adventure, recreating the events of 1665 when the village of Eyam quarantined itself from the rest of England following an outbreak of the plague. What fate will befall Catherine and her siblings when they find themselves transported to a strangely familiar barn, as the Black Death rages all around them? Vividly bringing to life long-ago England, this is wonderfully engaging fiction from acclaimed author Berlie Doherty.

    This is a good but haunting story. It is based on a true story about the plague in Eyam (a real place in England, i have been) It is a really good tale and i would recommend it for ages 11+
