In Joan, Katherine Chen has created a Joan of Arc for our time. Rather than a the thin, ineffectual looking Joan we've seen in images, Chen's is a robust warrior with the courage of her convictions and the extraordinary strength to back them up. She hears, not from angels, but from her own internal voice of justice, which she uses against the men who would thwart her. Chen's sense of place and historical detail are spot on. Highly recommended historical fiction for anyone who needs a real hero. Recommended by Kelly

“It is as if Chen has crept inside a statue and breathed a soul into it, re-creating Joan of Arc as a woman for our time.”—Hilary Mantel, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Booker Prize winner Wolf Hall
