Mary Sharratt's gripping novel places listeners directly into the hardships, superstitions, and brutality of the fifteenth century. Polly Lee's impressive narration brings out the humanity and courage of two female mystics. After bearing her 14th child, Margery Kempe worries that her husband won't honor their vow of celibacy. She seeks counsel from the famous holy woman Julian of Norwich. When Margery confesses she's had ecstatic visions, Julian encourages her to go on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Lee makes us feel Margery's anguish, guilt, and exhilaration at leaving her family for a journey into the unknown. Lee is exceptional at delivering the emotional moments when Margery is in a vision state. Sharratt's unusual story and Lee's impressive performance make REVELATIONS a win-win for listeners.
