Just as Joan is portrayed believably, so is what I call the mystery: the role of dreams, questions about destiny and choice, reasons that are outside our grasp, ultimate truth, and a divine perspective that can’t, in this worldview, be fully understood by humans on earth. Joan has guides along the way (who are primary characters in the story) but also makes her own choices. The book doesn’t try to solve the mystery, only presents it through the lives and questions of little girls and saints. I think it’s a beautiful book.
This book grabbed me from the beginning, and kept me reading. I would sit down telling myself I was going to read three or four short sections, and then look up twelve pages later realizing I’d become engrossed. I was, for many reasons, sorry when it ended.
