A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
The French Revolution is the center theme of this novel, with England at the forefront. Lucie Manette leaves England in secrecy to meet her supposedly dead father in Paris. Doctor Manette survives the Bastille with barely a grasp of reality.
Dickens explores and captivates the reader with hunger, poverty, social status, love triangles, and prejudices tightly clung to by the British and French societies.
Dickens brings a heart wrenching story to life.
