    Skillfully interweaving historical fact with psychological insight and vivid imagination, Sharratt's redemptive novel brings to life one of the most extraordinary women of the Middle Ages: Hildegard von Bingen, Benedictine abbess, visionary, and polymath. Offered to the Church at the age of eight, Hildegard was entombed in a small room where she was expected to live out her days in silent submission as the handmaiden of a renowned but disturbed young nun, Jutta von Sponheim.

    connie says: "Strong woman; weak novel"
    "Couldn't stop listening"

    If you could sum up Illuminations in three words, what would they be?

    The author brings to light the life of a fascinating and amazing historical character. Worth listening to.
