Written by a novelist and true-crime writer, as opposed to an academic, this audiobook reports the facts but allows for conjecture, mythologizing, hearsay, and psychological interpretations of Joan of Arc’s captivating life. Narrator Cassandra Campbell has a strong, assured voice that transforms the work from a basic history into an intriguing journey of faith and adventure. She reads at an unhurried pace and is careful to speak every word clearly, enabling listeners to become engrossed in the story. Campbell is just as at home with French as she is with English, and she brings a certain verve to the battle scenes and descriptions of Joan’s miracles. The result is a fresh interpretation that deserves to be heard. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2014]
