Review:

One feels closer to Joan in these pages than in any modern biographies. Saturday Review This is historical biography as it should be written...The author used the letters, chronicles, and testimony at Joan's trial, to thrust the legendary aspects of this young girl's life into the background and create an alive, believable human being. Library Journal
