A war-torn country waiting for a hero
An ebony box holding the key to a young orphan's life
A determined young woman who hears voices promising that she will save her beloved France
And another with no voice to say that her future is in peril
For centuries, Joan of Arc's legendary journey has spoken to readers' sense of adventure. Pauline Chandler's riveting novel delivers the tale with astonishing freshness and unflinching truth.
Pauline Chandler is a special needs teacher. She lives with her family in a former Victorian gasworks in Derbyshire, England.
