Sumptuously written and described with great skill, this multi-layered story of the events surrounding Joan of Arc in the medieval France of the fifteenth century will leave you breathless by its scope and ability to pull together the politics, the violence, the aspirations of an oppressed people and a genuine atmosphere of the time. Chandler handles History from inside out, showing us the personal triumphs and great tragedies of people fighting within circumstances beyond their control. This book is un-put-downable, and the final resolution is so right it will make you gulp.
