Series: Chronicles of the Scribe
The Black Death sweeps through a Sicilian village in Book Two of Ginger Garretts unforgettable Chronicles of the Scribe series.
It starts when a strange ship docks in the village harbor. That night an old man falls ill…then the bakers wife…then a street urchin. By morning half the townspeople are dead and more are dyinghorribly. And no one in town has a clue how to stop it. Not the local priest. Not the rich baron or his powerful knight. And not the three women at the heart of this book: the barons proud daughter, Panthea, the outcast healer Gio, and Mariskka, an unwilling visitor from another time. This fast-moving, richly imagined tale is a sure winner for lovers of historical fiction.

sweetieSacramento, CAAge: 55-65Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Intriguing and betterAugust 10, 2015sweetieSacramento, CAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 5Meets Expectations: 2This is the second book in the Scribe series and was much easier to read then the first book - In the Shadow of Lions. I wasn't confused and lost as in the first book. Garrett's writings are similar to Ted DekKer, just not as dark. It is always interesting to read a book concerning "spiritual warfare" as it brings to life the reality that "we have a Creator God who DOES have everything in His control". This had a surprise ending not the usual feel good expectation. Now I am off to some lighter reading - happy reading to all.
