Top Customer Reviews
While not a book I could say would bring a complete understanding of Joan's life, it was intriguing to read her own interpretation of the events in her life. A little deep towards the end, especially for a young reader, it never the less did prove to be provoking and we enthusiastically probed other mediums to find more background information.
The story is so full of emotion and controversy it is sure to prompt contemplation and conversation. From my experience, it was worth the read to listen to my 13 year old reflect on what it would be like to be living in Joan's time and if you were Joan. All in all, both of us had a positive experience from the book.
