Surrounded by hostile English forces, a poor peasant girl lives in a small farming village in medieval France. Armies burn nearby villages. Soldiers rip through the countryside destroying everything in site. France, under siege, teeters on collapse. Then, the thirteen-year-old girl sees a light, hears a voice, and entertains a personage who introduces himself as Michael, the Archangel. Thus begins the miraculous but true story of Joan of Arc. For the first time, this inspirational story is interpreted through the doctrine and teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Learn how this young woman qualified for and enjoyed the ministering of angels. Discover the events that made it possible for this obscure farm girl to rise to command an army at the age of seventeen. Find out how God called her, then trained and tested her. Finally, learn why her mission was critical centuries later to the Restoration of the Gospel through Joseph Smith. This biography provides answers to questions that have mystified students of Joan of Arc for ages. It also empowers the youth of today who, as Boyd K. Packer has observed, are "growing up in enemy territory." Indeed, Joan's life shows today's youth what it takes to withstand assaults by the adversary and, even in the face of death itself, to rise victorious, confident, faithful, and fearless. Included free with purchase of every copy of Joan of Arc Daughter of the Restoration is a thirty-three minute companion DVD recounting the author's visit to sites in France important in the life of Joan of Arc including: Paris, Orléans, Beaugency, Blois, Tours, the Château at Chinon, Reims, Rouen, and her birthplace at Domrémy.
