|Plot Summary of Pope Joan|
|"Historical Fiction 7th century - (www.popejoan.com) In order to gain an education, Joan disguises herself as a man to enter monestary; becomes Pope - and her life events during that time, including a love affair. Was she really Pope? Book leaves you with many questions and great discussion.Men and women readers will appreciate the historic setting and the "Stormy early Church history, Viking and Saracen raids, the collapse of the Carolingian empire, and a heroine who would rather give up everything than live without learning--this is the stuff of grand entertainment. The well researched background gives a real sense of time and place to this splendid tale of the legendary "lost" female Pope.""
