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.

Learn about Joan of Arc February 15, 2011
Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
I have mixed feelings about this book.  It is well written, and will give a good introduction of the historical events that surrounded Joan of Arc,  BUT, I don't really like the story very much.  It is somewhat controversial.  There are supernatural events happening and was it God, was it circumstantial, or something else?  I would not be comfortable giving this book to children until  they were a little older and more established in their faith.
