Need to Read #16: Scarlet Pimpernel
Title: Scarlet Pimpernel
Author: Baroness Orczy
Book blurb: Armed with only his wits and his cunning, one man recklessly defies the French revolutionaries and rescues scores of innocent men, women, and children from the deadly guillotine. His friends and foes know him only as the Scarlet Pimpernel. But the ruthless French agent Chauvelin is sworn to discover his identity and to hunt him down.
Quick endorsement: SP lovers unite! This story has all the best elements – high adventure, romance, suspense, intrigue, true love, mystery, and more! If you are an Austen fan, give this book a try. It’s not real similar, but utterly delightful. Definitely recommended!
