Book Club @ Peebles Library
May 15 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Book Club @ Peebles Library | Peebles | Ohio | United States

Join the Peebles Bibliophiles Book Club at the Peebles Library on Monday, May 15 at 4:00 p.m. to discuss The Maid and the Queen: The Secret History of Joan of Arc by Nancy Goldstone. Borrow a copy of this title at the library desk in hardback or audio book, or download a copy from the Ohio Digital Library.

Attention, Game of Thrones fans: The most enjoyably sensational aspects of medieval politics double-crosses, ambushes, bizarre personal obsessions, lunacy and naked self-interest are in abundant evidence in Nancy Goldstone’s The Maid and the Queen.

Politically astute, ambitious, and beautiful, Yolande of Aragon, queen of Sicily, was one of the most powerful women of the Middle Ages. Caught in the complex dynastic battle of the Hundred Years War, Yolande championed the dauphin’s cause against the forces of England and Burgundy, drawing on her savvy, her statecraft, and her intimate network of spies. But the enemy seemed invincible. Just as French hopes dimmed, an astonishingly courageous young woman named Joan of Arc arrived from the farthest recesses of the kingdom, claiming she carried a divine message-a message that would change the course of history and ultimately lead to the coronation of Charles VII and the triumph of France.

Joan of Arc, the brave peasant girl who heard the voices of angels and helped restore her king to the throne of France, astonished her contemporaries and continues to fascinate us today. Until now, though, her relationship with Yolande of Aragon, the ambitious and beautiful queen of Sicily mother-in-law to the dauphin has been little known. In a stunning work filled with intrigue, madness, and mysticism, Nancy Goldstone solves the thrilling mystery by showing that if you pry open the Queen’s secrets, you will find the Maid’s.
