"An Epiphany Gift for Robin" carries the reader back in time to an age when serfs depended heavily on the mercy of their lords for their quaility of life. As I read, I found myself keenly reminded of how fortunate I am to live in today's world of plenty. In spite of our challenges, we enjoy a standard of living unknown in the Middle Ages, even among the rich. I also wondered about my ancestors who did live in the Middle Ages. I hope one day to hear about their lives. Thank you, Joyce, for this beautiful story written in your extraordinary style.
