From the Publisher:

Centuries ago, one small town in Germany disappeared and was never resettled. Tom, a historian, and his theoretical physicist girlfriend Sharon, become interested. By all logic, the town should have survived. What's so special about Eifelheim? ||Father Dietrich is the village priest of Eifelheim, in the year 1348, when the Black Death is gathering strength. To his astonishment, Dietrich makes first contact between humanity and an alien race from a distant star, when their ship crashes in the nearby forest. Flynn gives us the full richness and strangeness of medieval life, as well as some terrific aliens.

Historian Tom and his girlfriend Sharon, a theoretical physicist, search for the truth about the 1349 disappearance of the German town of Eifelheim as the Black Death strengthened its grip on Europe, unaware that Father Deitrich, the village priest in 1348, was the first contact between humankind and mysterious aliens. A Hugo Award finalist. Reprint.
Physicist Sharon Nagy and her mathematician boyfriend Tom Schwoerin uncover evidence of an alien crash-landing in Germany during the 14th-century Black Death.
