Dazzling! Convincingly told, highly erudite and consistently enjoyable!,
This review is from: Joan of Arc (Kindle Edition)
Edward Lucie-Smith's eloquent prose gracefully steers through the life of one of History's most countlessly examined figures. What makes Lucie-Smith's book such a dazzlingly original contribution to the thousands of works published about Joan of Arc is his invitingly convincing account, lucidly describing her life from birth to tragic execution. Readers, both new and knowledgeable of Joan of Arc, will certainly profit: this is a skilfully pieced work that weaves a kaleidoscope of historical views while, remarkably, remaining untarnished by theory.
