Company of Liars

Company of Liars  by Karen Maitland

✭✭✭ 1/2 (out of 5 stars)

The book was captivating and interesting, with a lot of twists.  Set in England during 1348, when the plague was sweeping the country side, the book follows a band of travelers.  They share the road and the burden of traveling, and the hope to escape the Pestilence that is slowly surrounding them.  As they share their stories around the camp fire at night, we learn a little about each of their pasts, and why they were all brought together.  Although a little morbid in parts, this was a great read.  I really liked the author, and can't wait to read another one of her books.
