Much of EyamA fs population perished during that torrid period. Eyam: Plague Village follows the local rector, the Revd William Mompesson, as he tries to support his parishioners and contain the disease. Basing his account closely on the known facts, David Paul describes the events during this time in the villageA fs history from the perspectives of the rector, his wife Catherine, and the fictional character of Beth Hounsfeild, CatherineA fs cousin.
