Item description for Maid of Heaven: The Story of Saint Joan of Arc by Ben D. Kennedy...


Everyone has heard of Joan of Arc but how many people really know the complete story about this famous person? Perhaps it is the complexity of all that happened to her and the long, hard to read biographies that keep most people from knowing the full story. Ben D. Kennedy solves this problem by delivering an easy to read yet compelling biography that covers the life of Joan of Arc in a way that is both beautiful and inspiring.

The story of Joan of Arc is so remarkable that it is one that everyone should fully know. Called by God to rescue her people from the invading English, she answers the call when she is only sixteen years old. A little over two years later, she is dead but in the brief time she lived, she accomplished as much as anyone in history and became the legendary figure that she remains today.

At first glance, you might wonder how a poem can cover such a story but Kennedy explains: "I can say in a poem in a few lines what it would take pages to say in a regular biography and say it better. In todays world, few people have the time or the inclination to read a thousand page biography but Maid of Heaven can be read in less than an hour." The other advantages to the poetic form of writing become apparent as you read Maid of Heaven. The sheer beauty of the easy flowing verse brings to the story a kind of Homeric heroism echoing classic epic poems of the past.

"I was impressed by his clever English prose that was able to combine actual historical fact and the words spoken by Joan herself."
Virginia Frohlick - Founder and Director of the Joan of Arc Center- Albuquerque, NM

"Mr. Kennedy does an amazing job of putting such a lyrical story into capitivating lyrical form. "
Chris Snidow - Author, musician and leader of three Joan of Arc pilgrimages in France.

Expertly composed and highly recommended  May 7, 2008
Everyone knows of the general legend of Joan of Arc - a young and illiterate girl hears voices from God and leads France against the invading English. "Maid of Heaven: The Story of Saint Joan of Arc", however, tells the complete and through story of a sixteen year old girl who rose up to stand against insurmountable odds. Nonfiction, but written and reads like fiction, "Maid of Heaven: The Story of Saint Joan of Arc" is expertly composed and highly recommended to world history shelves and for anyone who wants a complete understanding of this enigmatic teenage girl who was anything but.
Beautiful lyrical form for a beautiful lyrical story...  Dec 4, 2007
I've read many books about France's Partron Saint, Joan of Arc, but never seen one like 'Maid of Heaven' by Ben Kennedy. It is Joan's life portrayed through beautiful poetic form. Mr. Kennedy does an amazing job of putting such a lyrical story into capitivating lyrical form. It is the kind of book that catches your attentiion, and then never lets go. Once I started, I was compelled to continue to the very end. The poetry is lovely and well versed, and the historical perspecties reflect an accurate accounting of Joan's amazing story. Most importantly, Mr. Kennedy doesn't neglect to include the spiritaul perspectives and implications in his work, and we are all the better for it. I highly recommend this lovely and most original approach to Joan's life.
Epic and inspirational   Sep 9, 2007
An epic flash back that water my eyes. I had read several books including condemnation files but Ben compiled the historic events in a magnificent poem. I did not expect this breathtaking story.
BRILLIANT ! ! ! !  Aug 17, 2007
What an incredible way to cover the life of Joan of Arc. All of the history is there and I love the clever way he incorporates some of Joan's most famous quotes into the poem. The way it is written made me feel like I had traveled back in time and was right there with Joan. I like this book so much that I donated my copy to my church library so that everyone can read it and learn more about Joan of Arc. By far the best historical book I have ever read.
A quick, thrilling read  Jun 15, 2007
Jeanne the Maid is a bold, brave and brash figure who remains true to her calling. This book is true to her. It is a poem, not a scholarly work, but Kennedy has tried to present the true story of the Maid accurately and I think he succeeds. Those who love the Maid will be delighted. Those who don't may find themselves wanting to know more after reading this fine poem.
