Read by Michael Morpurgo.
The gripping tale of Joan of Arc's extraordinary spirit and bravery is told through Eloise, a modern-day girl seeking comfort from daydreams of her heroine when her own life is thrown into turmoil. We are plunged into Joan's world - the world of a simple girl compelled to follow God's calling to rid France of its oppressors. We can only marvel as she secures the trust of mighty lords, leads armies victorious into battle, and finds the strength to face her own cruel death.
A consummate storyteller, Michael Morpurgo has chosen his narrator adroitly. Through Eloise he weaves a moving, page-turning tale of adventure and betrayal. Together with Michael Foreman's magical illustrations, this winning team has produced a remarkable book.
