“For 1,200 years her existence has been denied. She is the legend that will not die--the woman who disguised herself as a man and sat for two years on the papal throne.”
A historical romance type of book with an interesting twist, whether you believe if Pope Joan existed or not. This novel gives you quite some information about life in the 9th century and is easy to read. Nothing more, nothing less.
We discussed this in our book club in April 2002
