The story of the forbidden love of Rica and her beloved Soloman, a Jewish man studying medicine in 1348 Strassburg. The black death has come to Europe - and - well I don't want to spoil the story. Lets just say that this is the perfect romance novel. A beautiful love story set in Germany, not your typical Country for a romance novel. Everything about this book is wonderful, this is a keeper for sure. If you can find it, it is worth the price.
