Since her death at the age of nineteen in 1431, Joan of Arc has maintained a remarkable hold on our collective imagination. She was a teenager of astonishing common sense and a national heroine who led men in to battle as a courageous warrior. Yet she was also abandoned by the king whose coronation she secured, betrayed by her countrymen, and sold to the enemy. In this meticulously researched landmark biography, Donald Spoto captures her astonishing life and the times in which she lived. Neither wife nor nun, queen nor noblewoman, philosopher nor stateswoman, Joan of Arc demonstrates that everyone who follows their heart has the power to change history.

    " Dry book but this girl was fascinating! I liked how the author didn't discount her revelations. She accomplished so much as a teenager, it was really amazing. I didn't agree with all of his religious sentiments but he was fair to Joan and respectful of her. "

    " I'm not afraid to say it... I almost cried reading this one. Almost. "

    " Pretty comprehensive overview of Joan's life. It's the first indepth book I've read on her and the author seems rather to be making a point of telling his readers that he has something new to say about her. I guess I would have had to have read other stuff on her to be able to tell if there is anything exceptionally new here but it was okay. Sort of dragged in spots and rather funny in others. "

    " I never knew that we had so much information on Joan of Arc. I don't think I have ever read a nonfiction work so quickly. thought the story was so interesting, I couldn't put it down. The author isn't my favorite -- a little too much religious point of view for a nonfiction book for my taste. But, the story of Joan is fascinating. I want to read more about her. I believe that she truly was one of God's servants. "
