Pope Joan by Donna Woolfolk Cross

Pope Joan by Donna Woolfolk Cross: Back in the Middle Ages there was a popular legend of a 9th century woman who, disguised as a man, became Pope. Whether or not you believe this to be the truth doesn’t matter much, because the story of this brave and intelligent woman is engaging regardless. I loved learning about all the strange superstitions and infuriating prejudices. Joan’s own journey captured my heart as well. Excellent historical fiction.
