Very insightful and educational

The reader/professor’s quick way of speaking in spurts eventually grew on me and I am so glad I listened to the end. I appreciate her insights and study of Julian of Norwich and highly recommend listening if you tend to feel alone deep in your soul. I have a new friend and her name is Julian.

Great

I thought this was a great read. There is s o much I learned from Professor Carlson. I am glad she gave an exceptional overview of other 14th century mystics. She is not boring at all.
