This is a great introduction to Joan of ArcÛªs story using two strong, likeable female characters. The story is told from the point of view, Mariane, Jehanne‰Ûªs fictional cousin, and is full of adventure, betrayal, mystery and intrigue. Mariane doesn‰Ûªt always understand her cousin but she loves her and will help her as best she can. It is heartbreaking at the end when Mariane sees Jehanne betrayed, put on trial, and executed, but the final chapter ends on a note of hope and faith. ( )
