  It’s Tuesday, Where Are You? is hosted by an adventure in reading.

 Where are you? I’m in Kilmington in Devon, at the Midsummer Fair. The year is 1348. It’s grey and cold, the birds are silent, but the place is full of  villagers, people buying and selling, looking for work or for wives or husbands, thieves on the lookout for any purse they can steal, drunkards, gangs of boys rushing about, jugglers, pedlars shouting their wares, minstrels playing on fife and drums, children screaming and laughing in a jostling noisy crowd.

And please avoid spoilers!

Today’s teaser is from page 17 of Company of Liars by Karen Maitland:

The merchant pointed, his hand trembling. ‘Morte bleue, morte bleue’ he yelled, his voice rising hysterically, then summoning up what few wits he still possessed, he screamed, ‘He has the pestilence!’

  1. That sounds wonderful. I read “The Doomsday Book” by Connie Willis about the plague years (mixed in with current life at a British university) and it was a fun and fascinating book. Based on that, I think this would interest me also!
