Bestselling author David Elliott explores how Joan of Arc changed the course of history and remains a figure of fascination centuries after her extraordinary life and death. Joan of Arc gets the Hamilton treatment in this evocative novel. 

Told through medieval poetic forms and in the voices of the people and objects in Joan of Arc’s life, (including her family and even the trees, clothes, cows, and candles of her childhood), Voices offers an unforgettable perspective on an extraordinary young woman. Along the way it explores timely issues such as gender, misogyny, and the peril of speaking truth to power. Before Joan of Arc became a saint, she was a girl inspired. It is that girl we come to know in Voices.

David Elliott is a NYT bestselling author whose books include Bull, And Here's to You!, The Evangeline Mudd books, In the Past, This Orq. books, and Baabwaa and Wooliam. Born in Ohio, David has worked as a singer, a cucumber washer, and a popsicle stick maker. He lives with his wife and a three-footed dog in New Hampshire. www.davidelliottbooks.com.
