August: Historical Fiction - “Pope Joan: A Novel” by Donna Woolfolk Cross

For a thousand years, her existence has been denied. She is the legend that will not die–-Pope Joan, the ninth-century woman who disguised herself as a man and rose to become the only female ever to sit on the throne of St. Peter. Now in this riveting international bestseller, Cross brings the Middle Ages to life and paints a sweeping portrait of an unforgettable heroine who struggles against restrictions her soul cannot accept.
