The Death Cart
by Joanne Schoenwald
It's the 14th century. The Black Death has overtaken a small German town. Greeta, a talented young servant girl, finds a cache of manuscripts in a forest castle. But Greeta is in more danger than just the plague. A local priest, a conflicted monk and a disgraced knight help her uncover a mystery and translate the historical texts for clues to fight the plague. A trial leads to a chilling climax.
