The plot is of a manís 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 Sabatiniís best! Constant adventure, love, and a happy ending, just what a good romance is made of.
I prefer a traditional romance as most of Sabatiniís other books, and didnít care for this plot, but itís only 10 pages, so not much to invest and decide for yourself.
This gives too much of the plot away, so read at your own risk: The story developments as a romance of a clergyman and a girl who deceives him into falling in love but ends with division of the classes being stronger than the love he felt.
An emotional story empathizing putting the welfare of the one you love above even your own life. I recommend reading it. Short story of 12 pages.
