Saint Joan of Arc : born January 6th, 1412, burned as a heretic, May 30th, 1431, canonised as a Saint, May 16th, 1920 by V Sackville-West( Book )

146 editions published between 1920 and 2012 in English and German and held by 2,438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joan of Arc was fourteen when she first heard the voices. She was seventeen when she took command of the armies of France -- a peasant girl in the early fifteenth century in charge of a nation's forces. At nineteen she was captured by the British and tried as a witch by a church court. Before her twentieth birthday she was burned at the stake. In 1920 she was canonized a saint." "Vita Sackville-West fervently tells the story of one of history's most legendary women. Relying on the detailed records from her trial, Sackville-West reconstructs the scenes of the story: the slow growth of Joan's convictions, the great victories, and the pathos of her death.

77 editions published between 1943 and 2016 in English and held by 898 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The lives of these two saints with similar names could hardly be more contrasting. St. Teresa, reformer of the Carmelites, 'busy woman and great saint', endured the religious mania of sixteenth-century Spain and lived in a state of near perpetual ecstasy. Thérèse, on the other hand, lived the quiet life of a nun in late-nineteenth-century France, was meek, devout and perhaps rather dim. She became a saint of the common people, largely because of the ordinariness of her life (excepting the odd vision)

Challenge was Vita Sackville-West's second novel. It was ready to go to print in 1920, but the author suddenly changed her mind for fear of the scandal it would cause. Vita's love affair with Violet Trefusis had reached its peak and they decided to abandon everything - children and husbands included - to elope to France. They returned to their families eventually, but Challenge remains a testament to their love. The hero, Julian, may be a Byronic young Englishman, and Eve the woman he adores; it may be an adventure tale set on a Greek island. But really, this is a love story, written in the presence of the beloved and inspired by her. And, as its title implies, the novel is a challenge to the society that condemned Vita and her lover-- Back cover
