    1. If you re expecting another Scarlet Pimpernel, you ll not find it here Nor is it the sort of spy novel as The Emperor s Candlesticks , with action and intrigue Rather, it is a tale of family feuds and the rejected aristocracy of France trying to find a life again among the ruins of what they lost, and battling primarily their own prejudices and resentments It is also a love story between a strong man and a dainty woman Is there any hope to be had in the ruins of a nation
