Summary
When the Black Death enters England through the port in Dorsetshire in June 1348, no one knows what manner of sickness it is?or how it spreads and kills so quickly. The Church cites God as the cause, and fear grips the people as they come to believe that the plague is a punishment for wickedness. Lady Anne of Develish is a rarity among women, being both literate and knowledgeable. With her husband absent from the manor when news of this pestilence reaches her, she looks for more sensible ways to protect her people than daily confessions of sin. She brings her serfs inside the safety of the moat that surrounds her manor house, then refuses entry to anyone else, even her husband. The nerves of all are tested by continued confinement and ignorance of what is happening in the world outside. The people of Develish are alive. But for how long? And what will they discover when the time comes for them to cross the moat again?
