30 Days of Books: Favorite Classic

The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy

I have lots of classic favorites, including Persuasion by Jane Austen and The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, but I chose The Scarlet Pimpernel becuase I think it's one people haven't read, at least in comparison to my other favorites.

The Scarlet Pimpernel is the story of an Englishman who saves French aristocrats from the guillotine during the French Revolution. It's a really fun read.
