This is an easy to read, simple little story about the Plague in medieval Europe. A parcel from a plague-infected town is shipped into another country village, carrying the Bubonic Plague with it. In this way everyone who comes in contact with the package gradually becomes ill.This is a good book; I really liked it. It has a good story and strong, likable characters. It has a very quiet, dignified strength.

Despite the shortness of this book, I felt myself completely satisfied with the depth of the story. It is a tragic tale, but acknowledges that life must always go on. The characters feel real and deal with their difficult decisions in ways that seem utterly human.
