And than sche was bodyn be owyr Lord for to gon to an ankres in the same cyté whych hyte Dame Jelyan. But while their writings about mysticism have always fascinated me, the women themselves have often felt remote. and implausibilities (why would Julian draft her work on expensive parchment rather than on a wax tablet as most people did at this time? A vibrant portrait of female courage * OBSERVER * Lightly done but intensely felt, it's mind-expanding stuff * Guardian, Summer reading - 50 brilliant books to discover * I've already finished Victoria Mackenzie's limpid novella .

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. When she herself falls ill with a fever, she experiences 16 “shewings”, or visions, and is persuaded to retreat from the world. Holy Wryt seyth that the sowle of a rytful man is the sete of God, and so I trust, syster, that ye ben. Their encounter, in Norwich at the cell in which Julian had by then been willingly incarcerated for more than 20 years, provides the climax to Victoria MacKenzie’s transfixing debut novel.

The challenges that they face as women in a culture where only male priest were expected to preach, and visions of God were played down, are brought out powerfully. She encouraged her to place all her trust in God and not fear the world’s language, as the more disdain, shame, and reproach she faced in the world, the greater her merit in God’s sight. An astounding debut, both epic and intimate, about grief, trauma, revelation, and the hidden lives of women - by a major new talent 'The best first novel I've read in years .

The invisible balancing and weighing MacKenzie has done across the whole to bring them dialogue with each other and to bring the reader into emotional and spiritual connectedness with them is just so brilliant.A.

In "Abbi pietà del mio piccolo dolore", Victoria MacKenzie dà spazio a entrambi gli aspetti -quello cristiano e quello umano- di due donne che vissero nell'Inghilterra quattrocentesca: Margery Kempe e Julian di Norwich. A novel that brings back to life two extraordinary medieval women, Julian of Norwich and Margery Kemp.Ho compreso l’importante di riportare due libri medievali scritti da donne, è stato anche interessante scoprire questo fatto, ma non vedo eroismo e coraggio come si vuol lasciare passare, ma solo i contenuti deliranti di due fantastiche medievali, cosa che succedeva moto spesso visto il rapporto con l’uomo e la fede e, visto che il ruolo della donna nella società, spesso non gli rimaneva che aggrapparsi alla fede e alla sottomissione totale verso Cristo. He that is evyrmor dowtyng is lyke to the flood of the see, the whech is mevyd and born abowte wyth the wynd, and that man is not lyche to receyven the gyftys of God. Here it is not the picaresque and the picturesque but the almost magnetic necessity between the two souls which is key. The Holy Gost mevyth nevyr a thing ageyn charité, and, yf he dede, he wer contraryows to hys owyn self, for he is al charité. This book was a heart wrenching tale of two women and their coming together in a world and society that see them as nothing more than wives and mothers.
