Summary

A mysterious boy is the focus of a novel that takes us from the September Massacres of 1792 to the death of Robespierre four years later. After rescuing Sido, the young daughter of an aristocrat, he flees to England, making secret journeys back to France to smuggle out refugees. He and Sido fall in love - but then she is kidnapped, and he needs all his courage and skill to rescue her a second time. Even then the young lovers are not safe, for our hero learns who he really is, and how can Sido marry him?The horrors of the French Revolution make a dazzlingly vivid setting for a tale of high adventure that is also a most touching love story. The first book, complete in itself, leaves the reader longing to know what happened next - the second book concludes the story of Sido and this wonderful charismatic young man who shows true heroism.
