England and France had long been fighting over the domination of much of the French countryside by the time that St. Joan of Arc was born to a devout peasant family in the northeastern part of France. Despite her humble beginnings, this young girl was destined to change the course of history, and ultimately act to prevent France from falling into Henry VIII's schism less than 100 years after her death.
This magnificent recording by Christopher Check brings to life this fascinating, but often complex, story of the Hundred Years' War, the checkered political map of France, the visions and sanctity of St. Joan, and most importantly, a deep understanding of the effect of Providence upon the lives of men. This is one story you will not want to miss!
