This is a short work of fiction with a very intricate lace knitting shawl pattern. The pattern is for an expert knitter. The story is as old as Rennes-le-Charteau and as new as the precarious state of the world today. Jehanne was the name she wrote on her confession; we know her as Joan of Arc. Born in a time of turmoil, when Popes were corrupt and Saints were martyred, this brave woman carried her banner into battle against the English. Many yars later, her family must deal with the mystery of that banner. This seemingly innocuous heirloom, passed down from one generation to the next, has a secret. A secret that has become dangerous. Only a beautiful shawl holds the clues to unravel the mystery. This book contains a beautiful lace shawl pattern designed especially for this story by noted designer, Marla Mutch. It is not for the beginning knitter. It is published by Spinning Wheel Yarn Shop. The shawl is pictured on the book and is an heirloom every experienced knitter will love.

Jane Ann Jibson, spinner of wool and words, was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She is currently working on her next short novel about Mackinac Island and the Civil war, that will be paired with a mitten pattern by Marla Mutch. Ms. Jibson, like many in her maternal family, is blind due to retinitis pigmentosa.Review:
This book has an amazing knitting pattern. The story is certainly not formula and the author has a keen imagination. Her descriptions are amazing since I met her at Knit Michigan and she is legally blind. This is a knitting pattern I'll keep forever - it is a work of art. --Sarah Ashcroft, Farmington Hills MI
