Publisher Comments:

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. . . .”

Lucie Manette had been separated from her father for eighteen years while he languished in Pariss most feared prison, the Bastille. Finally reunited, the Manettess fortunes become inextricably intertwined with those of two men, the heroic aristocrat Darnay, and the dissolute lawyer, Carton. Their story, which encompasses violence, revenge, love and redemption, is grippingly played out against the backdrop of the terrifying brutality of the French Revolution.

Synopsis:

After 18 years of imprisonment in the Bastille, the devoted Doctor Manette is reunited with his daughter, the gentle Lucie, in England. There she captures the hearts of two very different men—Charles Darney, a banished French aristocrat, and Sydney Carton, a well-known English lawyer, both of whom must compete for her love. With a twisting plot of revenge, corruption, and love played out under the shadow of the guillotine, this is one of Dickens' most exciting stories.
