The Black Death has never been eerier than in this time-slip tale by the Street Child author. What fate will befall Catherine and her siblings when they are transported to a strangely familiar barn, as the Black Death rages all around? Out walking in the Derbyshire hills, Catherine and her family are forced to take shelter from a storm. Yet the old barn where they huddle seems strangely familiar to Catherine. As the torchlight dims, shadows of the past crowd in. Memories of a time hundreds of years ago, when three children took refuge in a barn, not from a storm but from a terrible plague…
A classic tale inspired by the true-life village of Eyam, which in 1665 quarantined itself from its neighbours so that no other village would catch the plague.
