Audio Book Summary

Joan of Arc is a folk heroine of France and a Roman Catholic saint. Claiming divine guidance, she led the French army to several important victories during the Hundred Years' War, which paved the way for the coronation of Charles VII of France. Captured by her enemies, she was sold to the English and put on trial for charges of "insubordination and heterodoxy".

She was burned at the stake for heresy when she was 19 years old. Twenty-five years after her execution, an inquisitorial court examined the trial, pronounced her innocent, and declared her a martyr. Joan of Arc was beatified in 1909 and canonized in 1920. She is one of the patron saints of France. Most of what is known today of her story comes from the detailed court records of her trials.

    This was my first book from audio books and I am so glad that I found this app. The app is easy to use and this book was narrated nicely. It was basically a short story but long enough for my drive and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I learned information that I had never heard before. Listening to this book was a nice way to try out audio books app. Thank you for allowing us to listen to it for free.

    I liked learning more about this important female historical figure. The book covers her entire life and lets us get a better understanding of the motives behind her actions. It was not just the voices of the Saints that were guiding her but it was mostly her intelligence and her reasoning.

    I enjoyed the story and was interested in reading more about Joan because I just visited Rouen where she was burned at the stake and kept in the tower I like the length of the book. I did not enjoy the narrators voice as much as some other narrators I have listened too..
