Description

The Scarlet Pimpernel — Five Adventures

by Baroness Orczy

Five complete books collected in one edition formatted for eReaders.

In France during the last decade of the Eighteenth-century, the Revolution's Reign of Terror imposes rule through daily executions at the guillotine. An English baron with a band of fellow aristocrats dedicate their efforts to save French nobles from their deaths. The disguised hero leaves his trademark after each rescue - a paper printed with a red flower, a “Scarlet Pimpernel.”

About Author :

Baroness Emma Orczy [1865-1947] was born in Hungary. In 1880, the Orczy family moved to London. Emma attended Heatherley's School of Fine Art. There, she met Montague MacLean Barstow, a young illustrator. They married in 1894. She worked with her husband as a translator and an illustrator. In 1899, she started writing soon after the birth of her son. In 1903, she and her husband wrote a play whose protagonist, Sir Percy Blakeney—The Scarlet Pimpernel rescued French aristocrats from the French revolution. She published a novelization of the story. The play ran four years. Its success spurred enormous sales of the novel. She wrote more than a dozen other Pimpernel books of which the first, I Will Repay (1906), was the most popular. The last Pimpernel book was Mam'zelle Guillotine (1940). She eventually purchased an estate in Monte Carlo from her books' successes.

Reviews :

The Scarlet Pimpernel is a classic novel, though it is hard to categorize. It is part romance, part adventure, part spy thriller, and part superhero fiction. All of these elements went into the pot and the resulting stew is extremely entertaining. Joseph Boone

Constant danger, wit, romance, and adventure befall the reader at every turn. A. Van Hecke

3rd book incomplete

:
These are great stories and the app is quite user friendly. However, it appears that the stories are not complete. The third story cuts off in the middle. I'm glad I bought this when it was on sale rather than paying full price for most of a story.
