Illuminations: A Novel of Hildegard Von Bingen by Mary Sharratt
Illuminations: A Novel of Hildegard Von Bingen

Stephanie Renee dos Santos, August 3, 2013

I’ ll put this simply: I loved Mary’s novel ILLUMINATIONS. Loved it, loved it. It is a spellbinding chronicle of the life of the Benedictine abbess, writer, composer, philosopher, mystic, visionary, and polymath Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179). I adored the subject matter, the story line, the characterizations, the settings, the writing, the pacing, the scenes: everything. I highly recommend this novel. It is my wish for the world to read it. Compelled, I nearly read it in one sitting, only exhausted eyes and that fact it was 4:00 am forced me to put it down, and I even played hooky from my own novel project the next day to finish it. Buy this historical novel.
