I've always had a thing for books that use the Scarlet Pimpernel trope the intelligent capable person who hides behind a mask of inanity So Emma Orczy gets extra points from me for popularizing this secret identity plot device in her 1905 book The Scarlet PimpernelIt's 1792 the early days of the French Revolution and the Reign of Terror is at its peak thousands of French aristocrats men women and children are sent to the guillotine regardless of actual fault But a group of brave English noblemen led by the mysterious Scarlet Pimpernel are rescuing many of the condemned French aristocrats and spiriting them away to England French authorities are outragedMeanwhile Marguerite St Just a lovely French actress who inexplicably married the slow witted foppish but extremely wealthy Sir Percy Blakeney is having issues in her marriage she thought her rather foolish husband adored her but they've drifted far apart ever since she confessed to him that her accusation against a French noble family resulted in their deaths while being too proud to explain the whole story to him She's not uite sure why but now she finds she misses the adoration of the big galootBut Marguerite has worse problems the French envoy to England is blackmailing her into spying for him so he can find out who the Scarlet Pimpernel is and make sure he dies the next time he sets foot in France If she doesn't cooperate her beloved brother Armand will be guillotinedThis is an old fashioned adventureromance novel not all that well written and not terribly deep but an easy enjoyable read for a hundred year old book anyway It freuently gets high on the melodrama I about lost it when Sir Percy passionately kisses the places Marguerite's feet and hand have touched half crazed with frustrated love and it's incurably pro aristocracy though Baroness Orczy reluctantly admits that some of the French nobility had caused much suffering for the common people And Marguerite for a person who's supposed to be the cleverest woman on two continents sure got smacked hard on the head by the Oblivious Fairy's wandBut the exploits of the Scarlet Pimpernel and his merry band are well plotted and exciting to read and the romantic relationship is unusual can two married people who don't really understand each other and have become estranged ever work things outI totally got sucked into it and was all d'awww at the end Good times
