Summary: This classic story by Charles Dickens is set against the backdrop of the French Revolution. Two men, one French one English are in love with the same woman. The men look almost exactly the same, and this decides their fate. We see how all three of them face the dangers in France where the guillotine is always at work. From p. 4 of cover.
