    A good read.

    Set in 2 time periods, present day and the 15th century. Unpredictable, which is what a good whodunnit should be. As with other of her books she writes in real-time which is an unusual style, but works ok once you get used to it.

    Historical Fiction and Suspense

    The word incredible has two meanings, "impossible to believe" or "extraordinary" and the story of Joan of Arc meets both criteria. In a time when women were considered to be less than human and when most of the poor or peasant class never travelled farther than the next village, a 16 year old girl managed to travel over 300 miles cross-country through hostile territory and convince the Dauphin of France that she could defeat the English. She then donned 100 pounds of armour, rode a powerful destrier into battle and won back towns and cities between Orleans and Rheims where the Dauphin was finally crowed King. Given the time and her sex Joan must have, as she claimed, been guided by visions from God or a military genius, a witch or something even more extraordinary. Like Joan this book is many things: a work of historical fiction, a novel of suspense and a political statement. It does all of those things very well but after a second reading I realized that at its core it is about the transforming power, not so much of love, but of knowledge. It is so easy to hate the different, to fear the unknown, but once you come to truly know something, or someone, hate and fear can turn into acceptance, respect and even to love.
