Description

A Tale of Two Cities, a story of revolution, revenge and sacrifice, is one of Charles Dickens' most exciting novels.

Set against the backdrop of the French Revolution, it tells the story of a family threatened by the terrible events of the past.

Dr Manette, wrongly imprisoned in the Bastille for eighteen years, is finally released and reunited with his daughter Lucie who, despite her French ancestry, has been brought up in London.

Lucie falls in love with Charles Darnay, who has abandoned both wealth and title in France because of his political convictions.

When revolution breaks out in Paris, Darnay returns to the city to help an old family servant, but is soon arrested because of the crimes committed by his relations.

Lucie, aided by young lawyer, Sydney Carton, follows him across the Channel, thus putting all their lives in danger. With an afterword by Sam Gilpin. Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles.

Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.
