Summary
Fifteen-year-old Felise, an apprentice scribe in medieval France, is in a desperate situation. She dreams of escape from her cruel guardian, who plots an arranged marriage for her, and longs to be a writer and a book shop owner. The Hundred Years War rages all around her, even spilling into her town. Joan of Arc blazes into history as a teenage girl who claims God-given powers to change the fate of France. Joan's example inspires Felise to run away and embark on a daring adventure of her own. Every day draws her further into the underbelly of a life she has never known -- a world of lepers and vagabonds, brawling men and loose women. Burning villages and terrified peasants are left behind in the path of war as Joan tries to free France from the English. When a young suitor from home pursues her, Felise finds herself drawn to him despite her quest for freedom and her distrust of men. Following after the army, Felise meets Joan face to face and soon finds herself torn between Joan's single-minded sense of purpose and her own desire for love and personal fulfillment. A Tale of Two Maidens brings to life the story of an ordinary medieval girl on an exhilarating adventure. As she learns more of the truth about Joan, Felise digs within herself to find the strength, wit, and courage to continue her journey
