Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

It is 1665 and Hannah is full of excitement at the prospect of her first trip to London. She is going to help her sister Sarah in her sweetmeats shop, 'The Sugared Plum'. But Hannah does not get the welcoming reception she expected from her sister. Sarah is horrified that Hannah did not get her message to stay away - the Plague is taking hold of London...<br> Through Hannah's eyes, Mary Hooper brilliantly recreates the smells, sounds and sights of seventeenth-century life in London. Hannah's excitement at coming to the big city is vividly evoked, as is the terror of a seemingly unstoppable Plague that takes hold of the city street by street, house by house.<br> Includes recipes for 17th century sweetmeats and pot pourri.

Prequel to: Petals in the ashes.
