It has been 10 years since Juliette de Marny's father asked her to swear revenge upon Deroulede for the death of her brother in a duel. At last, she finds herself in Deroulede's house, with an easy opportunity to betray him to the citizens of France for conspiring against the people. But Juliette realizes, too late, that she is in love with Deroulede. Can the Scarlet Pimpernell rescue Deroulede from certain death by guillotine? Will Deroulede forgive Juliette for her betrayal of him? Romance and intrigue abound in this delightful swashbuckler.
"Johanna Ward is fun to listen to. She puts the author's rather melodramatic prose in the best possible light by reading with restraint, gravity, and authority." (AudioFile)
