Helen Castor, who told the stories of England’s early queens in the television series She-Wolves, turns to another remarkable medieval woman in this biography of ‘Joan the Maid’, the peasant girl who heard heavenly voices, led an army to victory and presided over the dauphin’s coronation before being condemned and burned for heresy. But the book is also a history of Joan’s era, setting her in the context of France’s political turmoil post-Agincourt and tracking her posthumous rehabilitation. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
