Excellent, Young Adult, Joan of Arc, Faith, Women's Roles, War, Religion
Joan's life began simply on a farm, where her greatest ambitions were restricted to domestic opportunities. Oddly perhaps, she excelled at duties such as baking, sewing, and tending the animals. But when her father arranges a marriage for her, she declines and runs away to lead an army against the English King Charles. Her endeavors bring success originally, and then she is captured and put on trial for her life. Alone in the end, she is burned at the stake.
