Jeanne is a young woman from rural France - a knight who wears men's clothing. The English call her Joan of Arc. Jeanne has led France to victory in epic battles. She hears ghostly voices and has unspeakable desires. Her king has abandoned her. Her heart has been broken. Finally she is captured by her enemies and burnt for heresy. This is her story, and the story of her beloved. Alizadeh weaves together multiple narrative perspectives to tell the story of a courageous young woman who, driven by a passion for justice and forbidden desire, changed the course of Western history. A provocative portrait of the life of one of history’s most fascinating figures and the first serious dramatisation of Jeanne's sexuality.
