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 )

127 editions published between 1935 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 2,360 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.

Challenge by V Sackville-West( Book )

27 editions published between 1923 and 2011 in English and French and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
