The 14th century reflects two contradictory images: on the one hand, a glittering time of crusades and castles, cathedrals and chivalry, and the exquisitely decorated Books of Hours; and on the other, a time of ferocity and spiritual agony, a world of chaos and the plague.

What made the experience of listening to A Distant Mirror the most enjoyable?

I've been listening to this one audiobook more often over the last eight years than any other. Fascinating writing. Great narration. Can one 're-read' an audiobook?

What about Nadia May’s performance did you like?

A friendly, intimate, voice. Clear enunciation and diction. Very expressive.
