A chapter book for older readers.
It was the end of the world, the end of all the child had ever known. Then Lady Dance came singing through the village, and everything was changed.
Lady Dance leads her followers from the plague-stricken villages into a world of joy and music. When Lady Dance sang even death was pushed away. The boundaries of the child's world were pushed far beyond the village she had always known. She began to dream of knights riding to Jerusalem, of books and hope and music.
Set in medieval times when the bubonic plague is at its height, 'Lady Dance' is a tale of love and duty, and the meeting of minds and hearts in the most unlikely circumstances. It is also a story about transcending the world of everyday, and the nature of religious experience.
