Short Biography of
Joan of Arc
The book Maid of Heaven: The Story of Saint Joan of Arc may be the best short biography ever written about Joan of Arc as it provides as much of the essential information about Joan as long biographies yet can be read in under an hour. A review at Amazon by one young lady reflects the experience of most readers of Maid of Heaven: "This book...is like a song dedicated to her and God; rich with information and melodious in word, this new piece of literature is written in poem form. All the major events of Joan's life, including the locations she visited, the various battles she fought, and the reactions of those around her are recorded here in beautiful lilting print, sometimes rhyming and sometimes not. The educational aspect of the book is as fluid as the poetic one; as you find yourself following Joan's story and rolling the poetry off your tongue, you may not even notice at first how easily all the vital facts about Joan's life are absorbed into memory. With this book, author Ben D. Kennedy has given us both an essential learning tool (one shorter and far more fun to read than many a textbook) and a moving dedication to God and one of His greatest servants, a woman who reflected her Lord as both a lionheart warrior and a lamb to sacrifice. I highly recommend this book to all!"
