Sinopse

The Death Cart is a compelling historical fiction piece set in the middle of the 14th century at the time of the Black Death. The story is infused with the odors, sounds and descriptions of asmall German town that is disintegrating from the effects of the plague, which strikes its citizens without warning and defies explanation.Greeta, a pretty and talented 15-year-old servant-girl, is the main character. She and her boyfriend, Timothy, havediscovered a cache of old manuscripts in an abandoned castle in the forest. As the sickness overtakes her loved ones, shefinds she must enlist the help of the local priest and a spiritually conflicted monk in order to translate the ancient writings of the historians Herodotus, Thucydides and Procopius, looking for clues to fight the plague.The novel is filled with interesting characters: Greeta’s master and mistress and their twin daughters, a disgraced knight, a young prostitute with bi-colored eyes, a charismatic animal doctor, and a mysterious priest inquisitor.Events unfold rapidly, including a near fatal fight in a tavern, Greeta’s arrest and imprisonment and a trial that leads to the chilling climax.The presence of the death cart is recurrent throughout the novel as a reminder of the tenuous thread that binds the living to the dead.
