This was an excellent book. Set in 14th century England, a band of rag tag people end up traveling together to try to escape the Black Plague and their own pasts. Each member of the group has a secret. One by one, the secrets are revealed. Dark and compelling, this book kept me totally engrossed. Highly recommended.

Excellent historical fiction with a host of different personalities. Its a little bit historical, a little fantasy and a little mystery. Very enjoyable.

Loved it. I lean toward books with a dark theme and this is amongst the darkest.

The company is a group of people (lost souls, really) traveling to escape the plague. Each has a story about his/her past that is based on a lie. One within the group seeks out the truth - at all costs.

The moral question is, which should prevail - truth or hope?

This book has quickly become one of my favorite novels.
Enough history to feed my interest, a GREAT storyline with interesting characters and reminders of how fragile our secrets are....lay your hands on it and I'll bet ya can't put it down!
