Doomsday Book
Said the Washington Post Book World, "The world of 1348 burns in the mind's eye and every character alive in that year is a fully realized being. It becomes possible to feel that Connie Willis did, in fact, over the five years Doomsday Book took her to write, open a window to another world and that she saw something there..."
From Amazon
Connie Willis labored five years on this story of a history student in 2048 who is transported to an English village in the 14th century. The student arrives mistakenly on the eve of the onset of the Black Plague. Her dealings with a family of "contemps" in 1348 and with her historian cohorts lead to complications as the book unfolds into a surprisingly dark, deep conclusion. The book, which won Hugo and Nebula Awards, draws upon Willis' understanding of the universalities of human nature to explore the ageless issues of evil, suffering and the indomitable will of the human spirit.
