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.

    It was really interesting to learn more about Joan of Arc. This telling of her story was done in a very classic-sounding way, both the writing and the narrating. Sometimes it was confusing to listen too, and it left me wanting to fill in a lot more information ~ but this was a good introduction to this incredible young woman / warriorress / Saint.

    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.

    Good narration, albeit with very Anglicized pronunciation of the French words. Good story.

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 enjoy this app immensely. I listen as I take my daily walk. This particular book was so interesting in that Joan of Arc followed her God even in the face of war and death. Such bravery and dedication!

    At first I wasn’t sure I was going to finish the book but glad I did. I lived in Paris many years ago and found it interesting to hear the historical context and importance of many places I invited in France through this book.

    It was very educational but I didn't think it was very engaging.
