Description

This spellbinding National Book Award Finalist from award-winning author Martine Leavitt received starred reviews from School Library Journal and Booklist. Sixteen-year-old Keturah tells vibrant stories of her own imagining to the folk of her small village. Her talent for painting beautiful pictures with words is impressive indeed, but will it be enough to save her life when she becomes lost in the deep, dark forest? "Readers will be carried away on the wind of Leavitt's words, and few will be able to guess how she finally ends her story."-Booklist, starred review

Professional reviews

"The story of Keturah is a fable, a morality tale, and a sweeping romance tinged with fantasy and the super natural. It's quite a combination, and the intrigue is heightened when Keturah meets Lord Death and the encounter results in a compelling bargain. Known in the village of Tide-by-Rood as a storyteller, Keturah recounts her dilemma with hope and courage as she tries to find a "love greater than death" and save her village from the Plague. Alyssa Bresnahan enhances the story's eloquence with her crisp diction, strong cadence, and quiet modulation. Who will win the challenge between love, death, and life? This National Book Award finalist engages from start to finish. L.D.H. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
