This review is from The Legend Of Pope Joan Part 1 Frankia Kindle Edition Years ago I read one of the books to which Rachel refers in her How I wrote the book account which deals with the teasing possibility of there having been a female pope who has since been erased from history So I was already interested in the subject and delighted to discover how cleverly and plausibly Dax has forged the legend into a compelling novel Set in mediaeval times the story benefits from a simple direct style which suits the voice of the young protagonist as well as the period; plainsong being appropriate than baroue for the job Joan is a character who engages from the off; she is earnest serious a little priggish even; and she knows her own worth We root for her as she sucks up the knowledge that she craves and longs to follow her father into scholarly pursuits But we know that very soon she will hit that inevitable stained glass ceiling and that as a girl her abilities will be shamefully wasted Plus ca change Once Joan takes the decision to flee her fate and travel to Athens with her friend Michael her transformation begins both from a child to an adult her naivety threatens the pair and their travelling companion than once and also from a girl to a girl living as a youth She grows and her character develops as a result of her experiences showing a capacity for humour and empathy which endear her to us all the In childhood I was a devotee of the books of Rosemary Sutcliff She wrote adventure stories set in ancient times which educated almost subliminally she transported her eager readers into the thick of the action and steeped them in the essence of an era So it is with this book and the comparison with Sutcliffe's novels is meant as a great compliment Not that The Legend of Pope Joan 1 is in any sense a children's book It is however a stirring effortless read with excitement tension and a fascinating sexual perspective I shall certainly read the other two volumes of the trilogy and I suggest you do tooHelp other customers

Must admit I was a bit reluctant to read this book at first as I suffer from short attention span and thought it might be a bit heavy being a history novel but having first read After the Night I thought I would give it a go I was pleasantly surprised how easily I got into the story and how much it hooked me into the travels and tribulations of the feisty Joan and her best friend Michael as they travel with their protector Amadeus to Athens where Joan and Michael intend to train to become priests It was a real page turner as the three travelled through the the lands and came across all sorts of problems both of man and nature The novel has been well researched which can be shown by the good historical detail and the story flows extremely well carrying the reader on from chapter to chapter Can't wait to read Parts 2 and 3
