Dona Woolfolk Cross

Donna Woolford Cross wrote the book titled Pope Joan in 1996.
This golden oldie, a wonderfully composed historical novel, is a particular favorite of mine, and I have recommended it too many times to count.
At one time it was believed that a woman had been a pope and this tale expands on and enticingly reveals what may have happened to encourage this belief.

At the back of her book, Ms. Cross shares details about the research she did to write about the origination of this belief. But, please don't peek at the back first, as it is much more interesting to read after you have finished the book. This historical fiction delight will never go out of style or lose its luster. It is a fantastic read that I can't recommend more highly.
