Publisher's Summary

One of the most famous women of all time, Joan's brief life, spectacular death and mystical visions have no parallel outside mythology. But this programme makes clear how very real she was to the army she led - and to the enemy she drove from Orleans.


Audible Editor Reviews

Joan of Arc's story has inspired operas, plays, paintings, films, and an almost endless number of historical works. In this dramatized biography, narrator Valentine Palmer explains her astounding life alongside dramatic performances of key moments. Actress Mary Duddy (Coronation Street and other British TV series) is appropriately impassioned as Joan, while performances from other minor lights of the English stage and screen add color. Although there's nothing groundbreaking about this treatment or approach, fans looking for an introduction to Joan's life could do worse than this well-produced version.
