Lost in the forest, Keturah meets a black-caped man astride a black stallion - Lord Death himself. To save her life and the lives of the villagers, threatened by the coming plague, she makes a bargain with Death. Like Scheherazade of the Arabian nights, Keturah tells Death a story, and promises an ending ... tomorrow or until she finds her one true love.
Wonderfully haunting, hypnotic, and romantic, this is a story to be treasured.
