Overview

This chilling fictionalized account starkly describes the horrific events that coincided with the Great Plague that struck London in 1665. With surgical precision, this book becomes witness to the most heroic and most selfish human behavior and includes episodes ranging from the emotional to the terrifying. This extraordinary examination includes vivid detail of the rising death toll and the transformation of the city as its citizens flee and those who remain live in fear and despair. The stories of appalling human suffering and grief give this dramatic narrative its compelling historical veracity.Este relato escalofriante de ficción descarnadamente describe los terribles acontecimientos que coincidieron con la gran peste que azotó a Londres en 1665. Con precisión quirúrgica, este libro se convierte en testigo de la conducta humana más heroica y más egoísta e incluye episodios desde lo emocional hasta lo aterrador. Este examen extraordinario incluye vívidos detalles de la cifra de muertos en aumento y la transformación de la ciudad mientras sus ciudadanos huyen y los que quedan viven en el temor y la desesperación. Las historias de sufrimiento humano y el dolor atroz dan a esta narración dramática su veracidad histórica convincente.
