Overview

As the Black Death reaches its hand into a Venetian goldsmith’s shop, a young apprentice must make a difficult choice.

Venice, 1610: “My uncle the goldsmith died less than an hour ago but the Plague Doctor is already at our door…”

After the bubonic plague takes his parents, ten-year-old Tonino is apprenticed to his uncle in a small goldsmith’s studio perched on a bridge. But as the Black Death reaches its hand into his uncle’s workshop, young Tonino is faced with making a choice to survive.

From the author of THE GONDOLA MAKER and MADE IN VENICE comes a short tale of pestilence, Venetian artisanship, and the will to live.
