An historical novel set at the time of St. Joan of Arc, first published in 1927.
Jean D'Orbais was born under the shadow of Reims Cathedral. From his earliest childhood he sees its beauty through the efforts of the master craftsmen who are at work on it. When he is ten years old, he is apprenticed to a goldsmith, and begins his education in the arts. The story of his career, his escapades, his ambitions, and his final success is enthralling.
But it is not Jean alone who interests us. Through his eyes we see the bustling town of Reims in the 14th century with its crafts and guilds, its merchants and beggars, its nobles and its soldiers.
