From the author described by the London
Times as "the most remarkable historian of our
time” comes a stunning, high-concept time-travel adventure
that is perfect for fans of S. J. Parris and Kate
December 1348. What if you had just six days to save your soul?
With the country in the grip of the Black Death, brothers
John and William fear that they will shortly die and suffer
in the afterlife. But as the end draws near, they are given
an unexpected choice: either to go home and spend their last
six days in their familiar world, or to search for salvation
across the forthcoming centuries – living each one of their
remaining days ninety-nine years after the last.
John and William choose the future and find themselves in
1447, ignorant of almost everything going on around them.
The year 1546 brings no more comfort, and 1645 challenges
them in further unexpected ways. It is not just that
technology is changing: things they have taken for granted
all their lives prove to be short-lived.
As they find themselves in stranger and stranger times, the
reader travels with them, seeing the world through their
eyes as it shifts through disease, progress, enlightenment,
and war. But their time is running out—can they do something
to redeem themselves before the six days are up?
