I had my doubts about reading The Scarlet Pimpernel, which was first published in 1905. Besides, it's British. I do like the 1934 movie with Leslie Howard.
However, since the seniors book club chose it for this month, I dutifully bought the Dover Thrift edition and plowed into the book.
I like it!
Even though I already know the identity of the scarlet pimpernel, it is filled with suspense, intrigue and love.
A great read!
It's about rescuing French nobility from the Reign of Terror.
