Book Review; Land of Calais3:00 AM
Jeanne Andole is one of hundreds rescued by the mysterious Scarlet Pimpernel almost daily.
Yet only a promise from him that her family will also elude the dreaded death so common these days - Madame la Guillotine - induces her to reluctantly flee to the safety of England before they do.
As soon as she has arrived, however, trouble is already brewing. Living guiltily amidst high society, Jeanne is aroused by a startling truth which cannot go unheeded, and which sends her willingly back into the clutches of Revolutionary France to recover her endangered family.
Inspired by the epic tales of The Scarlet Pimpernel - the well-known character created by Baroness Orczy - The Land of Calais is an adventure that will take you from 18th century England to Revolutionary France in an exciting tale you're sure to love!" ~ from back cover of Land of Calais
