Warrior, visionary and saint, her legend has lived on for 600 years. Considered the savior of her country, a national treasure and Patron Saint of France, Joan of Arc was a peasant girl who conversed with angels and rose to lead the armies of France to defeat the English in the Hundred Years War. By virtue of her virginal purity, armored in steel plate and chain mail and carrying the Sword Of Victory, Joan did what no man could do: drive the English Occupiers from her beloved homeland and crown the French Dauphin as King. Captured, tried and burned at the stake for a witch and a heretic before the age of 20, the world has never forgotten her bravery. Joan of Arc was canonized a saint in Saint Peter's Basilica on May 16th, 1920. Many books have been written about her, but this historical novel by Amy R Farrell is exceptional. We know everything there is to know about Joan of Arc but we never suspected this: Joan of Arc had a secret, the great and secret joy of her life. The virgin Maid of France was in love!

Amy R Farrell is, among other things, a full-armored, full-contact sword-fighter in Medieval Combat Tournaments. She has been engaging in non-choreographed live steel combat since 1989, thus she knows Medieval Combat from inside the helmet. Her life-long love of History and her poetic skill with the English language make her the perfect voice for Joan of Arc to tell her tale of love and war.
