Product description


Joan's fleeting moment at the centre of Anglo-French politics retains its historical and cultural currency precisely because her story is never less than compelling; and Yolande of Aragon is a significant and fascinating example of those medieval women who brought extraordinary intellectual capacity and hard-won political expertise to bear on a structure of power that assumed its leaders would be male. (Helen Castor SUNDAY TIMES)

Yolande, as an astute politician, was savvy enough to cover her tracks, but, says Goldstone, without her there would be no Joan of Arc. (THE TIMES)

The story has been told many times but Goldstone tells it well...She writes very well, with a talent for locating neglected tales, and she has a rare ability to bring the past to life. (Jonathan Wright GLASGOW HERALD)

Goldstone recognises and makes clear the great influence of these two remarkable women on the course of French history. (Zoe McIntyre FRANCE MAGAZINE)

An eye-opening book, muchn of its evidence taken from primary sources that rewrites history with all the drama and pace of a good thriller. (GOOD BOOK GUIDE)

This story...has now been retold with verve and a fresh approach by Nancy Goldstone...(a) highly readable book. (John Ure COUNTRY LIFE)

Book Description

An exceptionally dramatic life of Joan of Arc and her previously unchronicled mentor, Yolande of Aragon.
