BELLMAN AND BLACK by Diane Setterfield is different.  I enjoyed it until the last hundred pages.  They seemed to drag on and on.  It is a story of man meets death eye to eye.  At first, I thought it was going to be The Devil and Daniel Webster, but Mr. Bellman never made a bargain with Mr Black.  I'm not sure exactly what the deal was but Bellman saved or begged for his daughter's life after all of his family had died from the plague.  He did eventually pay with his life but I guess, in a way, we all do.  It was said he could figure a way to make the sun shine all day and night.  Maybe that is what he did.
