Regarded by many as the most luminous example of Twain's work, this historical novel chronicles the French heroine's life, as purportedly told by her longtime friend--Sieur Louis de Conte. A panorama of stirring scenes recount Joan's childhood in Domremy, the story of her voices, the fight for Orleans, the splendid march to Rheims, and much more. An amazing record that disclosed Twain's unrestrained admiration for Joan's nobility of character, the book is matchless in its workmanship--one of Twain's lesser-known novels that will charm and delightfully surprise his admirers and devotees.

Listener Opinions

    " Mark Twain (if such can be said in this case) at his finest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ike Sharpless | 2/16/2014

    " The only reason I can surmise that this work doesn't get more attention is because Joan of Arc is so different from Twain's other books. But it truly is a thing of beauty, his lack of satiric bite and surprisingly pro-French (or maybe just pro-Joan and the force of her will) bent notwithstanding. It's a thoroughly engrossing story, with a decade of research to buttress its narrative. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle Guffey | 2/12/2014

    " I really wanted to learn more about Joan of Arc, but this book was too lengthy and bogged down in so many details that weren't even related I lost interest. I guess I didn't give it the time that I needed read it before book club. Not a quick read. I'll have to approach it again when I feel less busy. When will that be? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristie Kneisel | 2/1/2014

    " magical - mark twain's self-proclaimed 'best book' - took 12 years of research to complete "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennie | 1/28/2014

    " I love this version of her story - not what you'd expect from Mark Twain, but it is fantastic and so inspiring. I don't know how many times I've read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenna | 1/22/2014

    " The only reason I knew this book existed was Wishbone. It's a gem, and Mr. Twain thought it was his most important work, which is interesting. Shows another side of Mark. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 1/21/2014

    " An excellent read on a truly unique and amazing young woman. There are no words for what she accomplished. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 1/13/2014

    " Twain lent 12 years of his life researching saint Joan of Arc and it shows; an interesting and well-written account/story of one incredible human being. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kara | 12/13/2013

    " I was fully enveloped in this book and loved reading about such a fabulous women of history. It was reassuring the amount of time and effort with research Clements put into this book. His style with the narrator made it great storytelling and more personal. I would absolutely recommend this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miranda | 11/28/2013

    " Good book. The tale of Joan of Arc told from another point of view. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Selina | 11/14/2013

    " Mark Twain dubbed this his best work and I agree. A richly spiritual book, that floows the life of Joan of Arc from birth to her heartbreaking death. The spiritual side is what drew me from the beginnng. She truly believed she was doing GOd's will, and by the end of the book, so did I. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Manikantan | 10/23/2013

    " She is my heroine and everytime I pick up this book, I dont finish it once I reach the chapter of her "capture" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gary Gilbert | 9/22/2013

    " What an incredible person. This book makes you feel like you are there as Joan saves France. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jack | 6/3/2013

    " Very interesting. Shocking that book is so obscure: Twain considered it his best work. I learned a tremendous amount about Joan of Arc from this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kellie | 5/15/2013

    " I really enjoyed getting to know the true life and short mission of Joan of Arc. She is a brave woman and hero I can look up to. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lauren | 11/28/2012

    " Very un-Twain like, but a bit maudlin for my liking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maredith Walker | 11/17/2012

    " Easily one of my favorite books of ALL time!!! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Pattie Harakal | 1/12/2012

    " Another book club pick...who was responsible for this one? I'm not a Twain fan, found this difficult to read. It did, however, give me a very good historical perspective of Joan and what actually happened to her and why. "
