Dickens' thrilling classic of the French Revolution remains one of the most popular novels in his canon.

Lucie Manette has been separated from her father for 18 years while he languished in Paris’s most feared prison, the Bastille. Finally reunited, the Manettes’ 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.


"A Tale of Two Cities is one of my most dog-eared books." —Jackie Collins
