A great book - well written, easy to read, romantic, and full of action. I wish the author had written other books.
A great story full of action, adventure, and romance. This book and Captain Blood are probably his best known because pirate stories are popular, but I also recommend his book Saint Martin's Summer and other romances which are as well written.
The plot is of a man’s personal relationships which drives him into involvement in the French revolution and circumstances resulting from that. Action packed and a little romance. Sabatini has a florid writing style that was a little harder to read in this book, and in my opinion not quite as well written as some of his other books, but still a excellent story well worth reading.
One of Sabatini’s best! Constant adventure, love, and a happy ending, just what a good romance is made of.
