This fascinating, unusual first-contact tale is set simultaneously in medieval Germany and modern times. The interactions between the residents of Eifelheim and the aliens are full of wonder and interest, and the modern-day sleuthing to crack the medieval town's mystery is equally absorbing.
In 1349, the small German hamlet of Eifelheim was abandoned and never resettled. Tom, a historian, and his partner Sharon, a physicist, begin to investigate. What they discover will change their lives forever.
