In this volume:
A Child of the Revolution
During one return home, Sir Percy tells the story of André Vallon, a young Jacobin, to the Prince of Wales. André, wishing to revenge himself on a despotic seigneur, uses the Jacobins' rise to force the seigneur's daughter to marry him. Once wed, they come to love each other, only to have the old seigneur denounce André in an attempt to free his daughter. Will André be rescued in time? Can the young lovers survive the last heated whirlwind of the Revolution?
The Way of the Scarlet Pimpernel
One of the best Pimpernel novels, this is the story of a daring Pimpernel rescue told from the viewpoint of a rescuee. An innocent young woman and those she loves are singled out by the League for saving. But Chauvelin is on the trail, and things get complicated! Will she reach England in safety? Can Chauvelin really convince others that HE is the Pimpernel? Does Sir Percy make Chauvelin choke on his soup for a second time?!
The Scarlet Pimpernel Looks at the World
Sir Percy Blakeney comments on the modern world of the 1930s. An odd little book, and very difficult to find in print. Percy comments on the Romance of the day, the marvels of the "modern" world, and comments on the post-War fashions, attitudes, and atmosphere of Britain.
