In the madness of the French Revolution, a time when men, women, and even children are falling under the merciless blade of the guillotine, a hero emerges. The Scarlet Pimpernel, a man of unparalleled daring and clever disguise, boldly rescues aristocrats from their horrific fates. To keep his identity secret, he acts the part of a vain and foppish nobleman, and not even his men know who he truly is. When he falls for Marguerite, France’s most celebrated actress, his loyalties are tested, and the elusive Scarlet Pimpernel must find a way to be true to both himself and his calling. Baroness Emma Orczy’s classic is cherished for its adventure, suspense, trickery, and repartee. Join the League of The Scarlet Pimpernel.
