Description: Product Description
In thisnovel we meet the young farm girl Joan before she becomes Joan of Arc, and witness her struggles to understand the extraordinary task she has been given by her saints. Told in her voice, it is a remarkable story of acceptance and spiritual courage. ‘A beautifully crafted fictional portrait of Joan of Arc, from her first visions until she leaves on her historic mission. . . . A convincing, unforgettable—and non-doctrinaire re-creation.’ —The Kirkus Reviews. This edition, abridged by the author, marks its first appearance in paperback. ‘Wise and profoundly moving . . . captivating and timeless.’—The Los Angeles Times Book Review. ‘Barbara Dana’s recreation of Joan of Arc’s early life, before she commanded an army, is entirely involving and convincing. Making no concessions to the twentieth century, Dana portrays a Joan true to her time.’—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books.
