Joan of Arc, born in 1412, heard voices at thirteen and, believing they were directives from God, followed them - to the French court, to battle against the English, and to defeat and execution. This new book is not merely an account of a life cut short; its focus is also on Joan's history which, upon her death, had just begun.

As a new historic reader, I must say this book has some outstanding forums! It historically demonstrates the events based upon actual records and it shows how the fear of God drives one soul to victory even after her death! While reading, it almost puts you in the court room and on the battlefield witnessing her triump over dark forces of england! Timothy Wilson-smith wrote this book very well and I know any Joan of Arc fan would enjoy it! A must read book! While I don't like to much dry dramatics, this book doesn't really have any. It does give circumstances and stories of important key people such as Charles VII and yet it doesn't dig too deep into their life, but focuses souly on Joan and her quest to free france. It also gives first hand accounts of the men who fought along side of her while giving testimony! I didn't fully understand (but always heard of) her full story until I read this book. I'm not sure if this book is with full details of 'all' accounts of the historic records, but it sure will start you off in learning and understanding a true saint for Christ! As a christian, I don't speak a word of french, but all that serve God is a fellow child of the King!
