Scarlet Pimpernel (The) Novel


The Scarlet Pimpernel

by Baroness Emmuska Orczy

It is the year 1792, and no one possessing roots in the French nobility is safe from the guillotine--except those whom the enigmatic Scarlet Pimpernel snatches away. Who is this elusive Scarlet Pimpernel?

Barbara's Notes: This is a fun book to read with humor, mystery, daring escapes, and romance. Some characters use inappropriate language. (Grades 9, 10, 11)
