No historical figure’s life story offers a more intriguing and insightful look at a specific moment in French, and European, history than that of Joan of Arc. Over the course of a biography that sadly lasts just nineteen years, Joan of Arc completely altered the course of the Hundred Year’s War. Acting on the counsel of divine voices, Joan left her small village behind, swapped her peasant dress for a suit of armor, and transformed herself into a revered military leader. From her first miracle, freeing the besieged city of Orléans, to her finest moment, leading King Charles VII to Reims for his coronation, the Maid of Orléans stunned the world with her courage, her goodness, and her faith.

Inside you will read about…

â?? A Peasant Girl
â?? The Voices in Joan’s Head
â?? The Virgin and the Dauphin
â?? Joan Joins the Battle
â?? The Inevitable Fall
â?? A Prisoner of War
â?? The Savior of France Meets Her End at the Stake
And much more!

Ultimately, Joan of Arc was burned at the stake for her insistence that she received counsel from God but what she achieved as a result of this guidance is a truly incredible story.



It’s The Worst Book Ever Written: Don’t Waste Your Money Buying This, You’re Not Going to Get a Refund

Don’t do it. Do not buy this horrible book.



Airborne

by William F. Buckley Jr.

William Buckley recounts his life-affirming adventure with son, Christopher, as they sail across the Atlantic aboard his sailboat, Cyrano.

Their voyage is brought to life with vivid images of the sea exposing both the perils and wonders of the ocean.

Buckley logs detailed descriptions of their daily experiences and musings, inviting the reader aboard the boat, to enjoy the ebb and flow of daily life at sea.

What at first appears to be a chronicle of sailing, transforms quite literally into â??a sentimal journey’ through time, as Buckley reflects on his past and previous sailing experiences, as far back as when he was just thirteen.

Through this reflection, he is able to consider his successes as both a seaman and a father, interweaving narratives through the use of journals.

Airborne is a story of travel and reflection, beautifully depicting the vast and other-worldly quality of the ocean, a space untouched and unmarred by human habitation.
