Nesta biografia ficcionada, Ohanneson dá-nos conta da vida e do testemunho profético de Hildgarda de Bingen com base nos acontecimentos históricos do século XII, não só religiosos como seculares.

Hildegard of Bingen was tithed to the church as a child in 12th-century Germany. She receives visions from Lady Wisdom. At age seven she becomes an oblate to Lady Jutta, the abess of St. Disinbedenberg. Lady Hildegard records her visions and publishes them, making herself famous. Kings and noblemen seek her counsel in political affairs. The plot lacks intensity and conflict.

A thoroughly researched novel that enchanted me because Hildegard was an early feminist in a time when it "hurt." If you enjoy outstanding historical fiction, you will enjoy this.
