Short Synopsis
The Great Mortality is the extraordinary epic account of the worst natural disaster in European history.

Full Synopsis
La moria grandissima began its terrible journey across the European and Asian continents in 1347, leaving unimaginable devastation in its wake. Five years later, twenty-five million people were dead, felled by the scourge that would come to be called the Black Death. The Great Mortality is the extraordinary epic account of the worst natural disaster in European history—a drama of courage, cowardice, misery, madness, and sacrifice that brilliantly illuminates humankind's darkest days when an old world ended and a new world was born.

"Narrator Matthew Lloyd Davies captures the grim ironies and mordant humor that underlie Kelly's account." ---AudioFile
