medevil times

by Donovan S on May 19, 2011

One of the best books I have read in a long time, historical, factual, suspensful, wonderful. Transports you back in a close encounter with the black plague in all its horror.

I so wanted it to be better!

by Laura G on Dec 30, 2010

I had a few weeks off from nursing school, and I thought that this would be a great way to unwind. Not so much. For me, there wasn't enough historical input or interesting science fiction. Both seemed lackluster to me. Overall, a very unsatisfying read.

Good Book

Have been slightly busy to read the entire book. Have a lot of books to read right now. But, However I will find this one very interesting. William


Nebula award winner!

Time travel book with a good twist. Two story lines diverge early in the book and connect by the end. Very descriptive book, with good characters. Recommended for those who enjoy a full story that doesn't rush it's way through the plot.


Married! Science fiction & History

by Kurious2no on Jul 4, 2009

This book's appeal is the melding of science fiction with an interesting take on history in England in the 14th century. Willis has a style of writing that engagingly pulls one in and holds one's interest. The science fiction part really is just the device she uses to get us believably into the 14th century and to provide some tension between the past and the present. And there is a modern medical mystery tied in to that. Her descriptive powers blossom as she describes life in a small English village in the 1300s during the disaster that we know as the plague. The plot manages to fuse events of the past and present in a way that has all the action happening now. This is a really good read for anyone who enjoys a good story. I am not a writer or a decent reviewer, so this review does not do Willis credit. She is a fine writer!
