Description

“It was a dark winter day, and what with the shadows within, and what with the shadows without, he could but dimly discern the others who were brought there to have their arms bound. Some were standing; some seated. Some were lamenting, and in restless motion; but these were few. The great majority were silent and still, looking fixedly at the ground.” – A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens

After eighteen years as a political prisoner in the Bastille, the aging Dr. Manette is finally released and reunited with his daughter in England. However, there he meets two very different men, connected through their love for Lucie Manette. From London, they are all drawn against their will to Paris at the height of the Reign of Terror and soon fall under the lethal shadow of La Guillotine.

This e-book edition includes select, highly designed pages with quotes about the winter season.

The Seasons Edition - Winter collection includes Little Women, Wuthering Heights, Pride and Prejudice, and A Tale of Two Cities.
