As she grows up Eloise becomes more and more fascinated by Joan of Arc so when she learns that she is to move to Orleans, the scene of Joan of Arc's greatest triumph, she is delighted. But Eloise is lonely at her new school. She takes refuge by the riverbank. One day she hears a voice, just as Joan had all those years ago and the voice tells her the story of Joan of Arc as it really happened.

It is a tale of great courage and perseverance, loneliness and cruelty. This seemingly ordinary girl is called on by God to put the rightful king on the throne of France, and to save her country from the occupying English. Joan sets about this overwhelming task with unswerving faith and fierce determination until finally she is granted permission to lead the French army against the enemy.
