For Joan of Arc, it was about surviving in a man’s world. Nearly six hundred years later, at West Point, not much has changed.

One of the greatest heroines of all time returns and reveals the wisdom she received from Archangel Michael. “When you dare to commit to your deepest desires, your heart grows to accommodate the task at hand, no matter how daunting,” Archangel Michael advises Joan of Arc before she embarks on a mission that will change the course of history. With only eleven days left to live, she must take yet another leap of faith, surrender to the guidance of Archangel Michael, and set the record straight to ensure those in the future know the truth.

Her legacy reaches across the veil of time to awaken the heroine in all women. And for one twenty-first-century woman, Jane Archer, a West Point cadet, it means finding the courage to expose a cultural crime that has been disempowering women for centuries. In the process, she must learn to trust her own inner guidance.


RETURN OF THE HEROINE by Kaye Michelle is an intriguing fiction. A modern legacy of Joan of Arc. Told alternating between 15th century France, where the story is narrated by Joan of Arc, and 1990s United States, where we meet Jane Archer, a West Point cadet. In six hundred years things have changed so much between Joan of Arc and Jane Archer,both are trying to survive in a man’s world. This is a daunting story of trusting one’s inner self, courage, challenges, victories, divine guidance and the one’s spiritual relationship. While, we all have heard the story of Joan of Arc, “Return of the Heroine” brings her to  life on the pages of this captivating story. Ms. Michelle has written a well-researched story with many facets. A joy to read! A powerful and compelling story! Received for an honest review.
