The Scarlet Pimpernel

The Scarlet Pimpernel by Emmuska Orczy

Action! Adventure! Rescuing nobles from the horrors of the French Revolution in melodramatic style!

Virtually all told from the point of view of Marguerite, a Frenchwoman married to an English baronet, who slowly discovers the secret of the league that is gallantly staging the rescue. Not assisted by the way she revealed that another French aristocrat was trying to work with Austria, ending with all his family being guillotined.

Involving a ring, the favor of the Prince of Wales, a romance budding in the first chapter, a storm preventing crossing the English Channel, going to an opera, a poem sent to a noblewoman, refusing to fight a duel, hiring a cart, pepper, and more.
