About the Edition

A Tale of Two Cities
In this great novel Charles Dickens spares us no detail of the day-to-day horrors of the French Revolution. But injustice and tragedy hit the Manette family earlier when the Marquis de St. Evremonde imprisons Lucie's father for eighteen years in the Bastille. On his release Dr. Manette is nearly demented and does not realize that Lucie is his daughter. In England Lucie slowly nurses him back to life before she is inexorably caught up in the terrifying events of the revolution in Paris culminating in her husband's sentence to the guillotine.
