Spellbinding and entrancing

Keturah and Lord Death
by Martine Leavitt

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.
