Jacquetta always has had the gift of second sight. As a child visiting her uncle, she met his prisoner, Joan of Arc, and saw her own power reflected in the young woman accused of witchcraft. They share the mystery of the tarot card of the wheel of fortune before Joan is taken to a horrific death. Jacquetta understands the danger for a woman who dares to dream. Jacquetta is married to the Duke of Bedford, English regent of France, and he introduces her to a mysterious world of learning and alchemy.

Anti-climactic. The Story sort of dragged on and on. Narrator kept me listening but feel somewhat gypped with regard to the story line. Preview was misleading, I was expecting a little more mystical content - reminiscent of The Mists of Avalon, but it wasn't.
