It is 1349 in plague-ravaged Cologne. A young Jewish boy,
Aaron Levey, overhears plans to rid the city of Jews in an attempt
to halt the Black Death.
Despite escaping under cover of darkness, his family are
overpowered and Aaron flees alone into the unknown countryside.
There unfolds an exciting yet horrific story of religious prejudice,
purging, friendship and betrayal, while Aaron travels through
foreign lands with his young ward, looking for peace and a place
they can call home.
He has the skills to establish a tailoring business wherever he
ends up, but will he find love?
