A Tale Of Two Cities

by Charles Dickens L. Dickens Hawksley

In 18th century France, the rich seem to have everything they could ever want, while the poor barely keep from starving. Injustice is commonplace, and discontent and revolution are brewing. . . The hero of this classic tale by Charles Dickens is a young French nobleman known as Charles Darnay. Sickened by the wrongs he sees, he renounces his family and his country, and tries to escape the past by settling in England. But when an old servant pleads for his help, he returns to Paris - only to find himself on trial for his life. Book jacket.
