This new book attempts a revisionist sweep at the myth and proposes to unearth a secular basis for Joan's exploits in the form of her mentor, Yolande of Aragon. Ultimately, we can never know what really happened and this book is an entertaining look at what might have been.
Nancy Goldstone's account is clear and she brings the dramatis personae to life in a most engaging way in this excellent history.
A convincing revisionist biography of Joan.
Goldstone rewrites history with all the drama and pace of a good thriller.
An eye-opening book that shows that Joan was part of a greater narrative, much of its evidence taken from primary sources.
