Written (by a French born Englishman) in the form of a fairytale, this elegant retelling is historically accurate. Told in the third person, Joan is an equal party with her saints, angels and their voices, royal personages, soldiers and evil adversaries. Focuses on her rapid career rise in order to crown the Dauphin at Rheims and her equally rapid decline and death at Rouen at the stake. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0911845453, Hardcover)

There are volumes on the story of Saint Joan of Arc (even by famous Protestant authors), but can you imagine a better version than the documentation by one of the greatest Catholic authors of this century, Hilaire Belloc. In his characteristic style, Belloc carefully tells the complete story in the most compelling manner. A great story, a great saint, a great author. You won't be able to set it down, a Catholic treasure. Gold embossed cloth.
