Part one of two. Ken Follett travels across Europe to examine the impact of the bubonic plague in the 14th century, which arrived in Italy in 1347 and went on to kill tens of millions across the continent. He uncovers the fate of two sisters on an English farm, a priest in Winchester and a doctor in Florence, and explores how Europe underwent a radical transformation as a result of the outbreak.
