Medieval Word of the Day

Here's one I bet you don't hear every day...

Oblate: a child "donated" to a monastery by his parents to be brought up in the religious life

Check out today's blog review of Illuminations of the Heart at Dreams of Quill and Ink. Leave a comment to win one of four prizes, including an autographed copy of Illuminations!

Ooohhh, I don't know if I could ever donate my children, although Hannah did so with Samuel...(1 Sam 1:24-28)
I read your Illuminations review as well. So glad your book's virtual tour is going great!

Thanks, Laura!

Hannah did get to visit Samuel once a year. But still, how tough that would be!!!
