The Maid: A Novel of Joan of Arc by by Kimberly Cutter

During the Hundred Years’ War, Jehanne, later known as Joan of Arc, heard saints’ voices directing her to save France from British domination. Kimberly Cutter’s novel presents Jehanne as a simple peasant with no power or influence. Yet eventually she led a vast army to accomplish her goals. When opposition from unexpected sources confronted her, Jehanne struggled to discern and implement God’s will and to overcome her fear that he had abandoned her. The book contains vulgarity and profanity, which is sharply contrasted with Jehanne’s crusade against ungodly behavior. (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt)
