Anne Echols

Felise, an apprentice scribe in medieval France, dreams of escaping an arranged marriage and becoming a writer and book shop owner.

The paths of the two maidens cross, and Joan’s example inspires Felise to embark upon a daring adventure of her own.

Felise, an apprentice scribe in fifteenth century France, dreams of escaping an arranged marriage and becoming a writer and a book shop owner. Joan of Arc blazes into history, claiming God-given powers to change the fate of France. Joan’s example inspires Felise to embark upon a daring adventure of her own.

Every day draws Felise further into the underbelly of a life she has never known and the ravages of war. 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 who must dig deep within herself to find the strength, wit, and courage to continue her dangerous journey.

“…historical details are seamlessly worked into the narrative…” (Kristen McDermott, Historical Novels Review)
