An Unlikely Heroine
Where did Joan of Arc get her incredible bravery and strength? Joan claimed that figures of saints appeared before her. They instructed her to drive the English army away from besieged Orleans and then to take Charles to Rheims to be crowned King of France. But why did hardened soldiers follow her? And how did this maiden from the countryside save her country and end a war that had lasted for a hundred years?
Jay Williams' extraordinary tale of the life and death of Joan of Arc not only provides the answers, but also reveals her intelligence, determination, and faith. From the quiet fields near the remote village where she was raised to the bloody battlefields at Orleans and Paris, we trace this young woman's patriotic quest that would end with her death by burning at the stake.
