This review is from: The Virgin Warrior: The Life and Death of Joan of Arc (Paperback)
When I first opened the book The Virgin Warrior I admit my heart sank a little bit as it seem initailly very detailed in its history and I feared it would loose the main story in the process, but au contraire! It was a brilliant read, the detail made for a coluorful and insightful tour de force on the life of Joan the Maid. I would highly recommend the read to anyone with even a passing interest in the story of Joan of Arc. This book offers an escape into mideval France and the life and lives of the main protagonists are brought to life brilliantly, the dilemmas faced, the battles fought, the court intrigue and in the middle a passionate young woman with a purpose and a cause that she carried with all the determination of a middle ages prophetess.
