Josette is a wonderful main character, full of compassion and faith. She is not clever or wise, but her good heart and her unwavering loyalty pull her through the story. I loved the scenes where she takes action for herself, never flinching in the face of danger.
The plot is fantastic, of course, with many twists and turns. I loved how all the complexities of each situation finally run together to a swift and glorious end.
I also enjoyed the interesting and compelling supporting characters. The writing really makes each person real and true.
My only complaint about this book is that there wasn’t enough of the Scarlet Pimpernel in it. Although I did love Josette as the main character, I wanted to see the Scarlet Pimpernel and his men in more of the scenes
