This is a great listen. Much adventure and faithfulness on the part of the main character. Good for all ages.

Great historical fiction

Set in the aftermath of the September 2nd massacres, G.A. Henty tackles the worst of the French Revolution from the eyes of a British young man. Caught up on the wrong side of the revolution, the reader gets to watch a 18 year old boy slowly do what he must to save the family he cares so much about. Certainly the darkest Henty book I have read, but also one of my favorites. The historical perspective is certainly that of a royalist one, but captures the fear and poverty evident in France at the time, and acknowledges the errors of the aristocracy in their treatment of the third estate and how their fate came to be. Great story and well told.
