it was amazing

The only reason I can surmise that this work doesn't get more attention is because Joan of Arc is so different from Twain's other books. But it truly is a thing of beauty, his lack of satiric bite and surprisingly pro-French (or maybe just pro-Joan and the force of her will) bent notwithstanding. It's a thoroughly engrossing story, with a decade of research to buttress its narrative.
