A fascinating glimpse of the medieval past, this audiobook details the life and spiritual experiences of Margery Kempe, a Christian mystic who lived in England at the turn of the fifteenth century. Lucy Scott's narration draws listeners into Kempe's autobiographical details. Her delivery of Kempe's dialogue with God expresses earnestness and humility. The contrast between Kempe's voice and the firm yet encouraging voice of God makes the dialogue between the two convincing. One of the most poignant parts of the audiobook recounts Kempe's trip to Jerusalem, where she feels and sees the suffering of Jesus. As this audiobook uniquely presents Kempe's experiences, spiritual and otherwise, Scott's temperance in her narration helps listeners find much to appreciate.
