Description

In his spare time, Tim enjoys spending time with his family, training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and exploring sites of historical significance. It is a fictionalised account of the meeting between Kempe, a wealthy wife and mother to fourteen children, and Mother Julian of Norwich, daughter of a merchant and widowed mother. A riveting book, a celebration of the resilience and determination of women, extraordinarily ambitious for a debut but MacKenzie carries it off beautifully. Stories about girlhood, motherhood, sickness, loss, doubt and belief; revelations more the powerful than the world is ready to hear. Incredibile come da Gennaio a oggi io sia riuscita a incappare in tutte letture noiose o poco interessanti.

I would perhaps like to have seen more of Julian's theological wrestlings, although they do come through in the powerful end section when the two meet. Honest, insightful, erudite and wise -- ANNIE GARTHWAITE, author of CECILY Compelling and beautiful. It was after this that Jesus Christ appeared, sitting on the edge of my bed, very handsome and clad in a mantle of purple silk. I wrote about Julian of Norwich and Margery Kempe in my dissertation so the premise of this sounded super interesting. I must admit that religious fervour or even fanaticism are somewhat alien concepts to me, so I am probably not this author’s ideal reader.The best aspect of the novel is that they are not there as mystics, but humans, with struggles, aspirations, regrets, insights and choices. She tries to reassure him that God loves him, but when he asks her how she knows, she cannot dare to tell the origin of her confidence – that she herself has “seen God in all things”.

At its best, historical fiction can open up a window on the past, breathing life into those who are long gone while reminding us of how different their world is from our own. Seynt Powyl seyth that the Holy Gost askyth for us wyth mornynggys and wepyngys unspekable, that is to seyn, he makyth us to askyn and preyn wyth mornynggys and wepyngys so plentyuowsly that the terys may not be nowmeryd. Her visions of Christ – which have long alienated her from her family and neighbours, and incurred her husband's abuse – have placed her in danger with the men of the Church, who have begun to hound her as a heretic.

One from the huge amounts of loss she has faced in her life, and one from the huge amount of children she's been forced to have and the burden of womanhood that she struggles under the weight of.

Due religiose sensibili ed estreme che trovano finalmente il loro spazio in "Abbi pietà del mio piccolo dolore". I tore through this -- JULIA ARMFIELD, author of OUR WIVES UNDER THE SEA For Thy Great Pain Have Mercy on My Little Pain is a novel of rare brightness and clarity, concise and yet capacious: it illuminates the meeting of two extraordinary women like a shaft of sunlight -- IMOGEN HERMES GOWAR, author of Women's Prize-shortlisted THE MERMAID AND MRS HANCOCK Magnificent, bold and compelling .The audiobook was fun though, it’s the first time I’ve heard multiple people reading one so at least there was that. After her mother’s death, Julian of Norwich requested permission to be made an anchoress, a religious recluse, walled up in a cell attached to St Julian’s Church, her maid living in a neighbouring room.
