Publisher's Summary

Bring history back to life through Jim Hodges' historically accurate, exciting, and edifying audio recordings.

The storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789, ushered in the French Revolution. Within four years, the king was executed and a revolutionary tribunal was established to judge "enemies of the people." Led by Robespierre, the Jacobins sought to establish a "Republic of Virtue", and to achieve it, the property of nobles was seized and "enemies" tried and sent to the guillotine. Known as the Reign of Terror, everyone who was associated with the monarchy, expressed royalist views, or opposed the committee, faced potential execution.

Harry Sandwith, a companion of a French family, wins their confidence and becomes the protector of the three daughters. After the girls are condemned to death in the coffin-ships, Harry saves the girls and the gets them safely to England.

Loved this!

I read the Henty books when I was little (about 10 or 11) and loved the swashbuckling, thrilling adventures G.A. Henty wrote about. I was thrilled when I saw that some if my favorites were available for free! Jim Hodges certainly does justice to Henty's writing, and hopefully others will enjoy the stories as much as I did, do now, and will for years to come🤩.

Three stars may seem generous.

It seemed to.me that the book was written for a twelve year old. The narration was rather mediocre.

Great historical lesson but entertaining?

The story was interesting and informing but left so much to be desired in terms of the conveyance - undoubtedly it would be unfit to embellish the story, but many times the events that should have come with a greater sense of suspense or climax, ended up as flat statements.

Despite these shortcomings, I would seek out more of these stories but I would seek greater a similar narrative with more drama and emphasis in the delivery.
