"20Pope Joannbsphas all the elements one wants in a historical drama12love, sex, violence, duplicity, and long-buried secrets. Cross has written an engaging book.2112Los Angeles Times Book ReviewIn this international bestseller and basis for the 2009 movie of the same name, Donna Woolfolk Cross brings the Dark Ages to life in all their brutal splendor and shares the dramatic story of a woman whose strength of vision led her to defy the social restrictions of her day.For a thousand years her existence has been denied. She is the legend that will not die12Pope Joan, the ninth-century woman who disguised herself as a man and rose to become the only female ever to sit on the throne of St. Peter. Now in this riveting novel, Cross paints a sweeping portrait of an unforgettable heroine who struggles against restrictions her soul cannot accept.nbspBrilliant and talented, young Joan rebels against medieval social strictures forbidding women to learn. When her brother is brutally killed during a Viking attack, Joan takes up his cloak12and his identity12and enters the monastery of Fulda. As Brother John Anglicus, Joan distinguishes herself as a great scholar and healer. Eventually, she is drawn to Rome, where she becomes enmeshed in a dangerous web of love, passion, and politics. Triumphing over appalling odds, she finally attains the highest office in Christendom12wielding a power greater than any woman before or since. But such power always comes at a price . . .nbspnbsp20Brings the savage ninth century vividly to life in all its alien richness. An enthralling, scholarly historical novel.2112Rebecca Fraser, author of The Bront#235s
