This was an excellent book in some ways and a bit "Catholic" for me in others. However, how could a book about Joan be otherwise. One of the most fascinating things about this book (besides Joan herself) is reading the accounts, word for word, of people who were alive almost 600 years ago.

A remarkable book about one of the most amazing people ever to live. This book offers selections from the testimony of the witnesses at Joan's rehabilitation trial -- the soldiers, priests, and regular people who knew her and lived with her. Their testimony rings out, over six centuries later, and helps us to know and love Joan as they did.
