It seems like I haven't posted in a really long time!!
The Scarlet Pimpernel, by Baroness Emmuska Orczy, is the story of a daring, bold and adventurous band of noble Englishmen who risk their lives to rescue innocent aristocrats from "Madame Guillotine." Set during the height of the French Revolution, this book follows the story of Sir Percy Blakeney, his wife Marguerite, and their involvement with the society of the Scarlet Pimpernel. I don't want to give to much of the story away!!
This book is incredibly fascinating, and if you like adventure stories, love stories, history, or if you just like a good book, then you will definitely like this book.
If you like this one, there at least 10 more books in the series, including "Eldorado," "The Elusive Pimpernel" and "The League of the Scarlet Pimpernel."
Oh! Also, this is where my name is from!
Read it and let me know what you thought.
