Perhaps the most famous alias of all time, "The Scarlet Pimpernel" hides the identity of a British nobleman who, masked by various disguises, leads a band of young men to undermine the Reign of Terror after the French Revolution. The Scarlet Pimpernel makes daring raid after daring raid into the heart of France to save aristocrats condemned to the guillotine. At each rescue, he leaves his calling card: a small, blood-red flower - a pimpernel - mocking the power of Robespierre and his Committee of Public Safety. Having been told that his own wife was an informer who delivered an aristocrat into the hands of the Committee, the Scarlet Pimpernel must keep his identity and work a secret while he struggles against the love he feels for her. Until the day her own brother is taken prisoner... Download and start listening now!

    " I thought I had read this book years ago, but I really didn't remember how much it is about Lady Blakeney and so much less about the title character himself. Still, love the style and the language of this period of fiction. "

    " This was a great story. I have to admit that half way through I peeked at the ending just to calm myself. The old English was a little difficult to understand in some parts. And I guess it was custom to call a person Citizen back then but it was annoying. Overall really a great read. "

    " Thrilling tale...couldn't put it down! "

    " Decent-- slow for the most part but a good ending; despite its being a classic, I knew very little about it to still be surprised by how it ended. One of those books that could have been longer, but I am glad that it wasn't. "
