Paperback
The story of Joan of Arc has always held a special fascination for writers – among them Voltaire, Mark Twain, George Bernard Shaw and Jean Anouilh. Here Thomas Keneally transforms the legend, presenting a Joan who is at once a tough radical, an instinctive soldier, a nagging prophet and a touchingly vulnerable girl – a haunting and compelling heroine framed by the tumultuous times in which she lived.

Reviews

A great storyteller
The Times
A St. Joan book to remember . . . the familiar tragedy flames up with new and terrible effects in the retelling
The Sunday Times
A vivid recreation of Joan's age, so full of hypocrisy, vengeance, blood, treachery and madness - one that is eminently worth reading
Financial Times
A fictionally and spiritually satisfying Joan
Guardian
To say that Mr Keneally writes like a man possessed implies an abandon and breathlessness far from his tense, sinewy prose; yet this is perhaps the only way to convey the power and immediate quality of his remarkable novel. The effect is one of excitement and absolute authority
