When Joan of Are was thirteen she began to hear heavenly voices saying that God had chosen her to deliver Orleans from the English. This is just the beginning of one of the most powerful stories of courage, triumph and tradgedy in the history of France. In this memorable retelling, Josephine Poole's evocative and meticulously researched text is complemented by Angela Barrett's breathtaking illustrations to create a work that is as inspirational as the story itself.
