Lucie thinks that her father, Dr Manette,
is dead. Then one day a stranger tells her that Dr Manette
is alive - he has been in the terrible Bastille prison
in Paris for many years, and has just been released.
In Paris, Lucie finds her father being cared for by
a loyal ex-servant, Defarge, and his wife. Poor Dr Manette
goes back to England with Lucie.
A few years later, when Dr Manette and Lucie return
to Paris, everything has changed. The French Revolution
has begun, and the poor people are killing the noblemen.
Lucie's husband, the kind Charles Darnay, is the heir
of some of the cruellest noblemen, and the Defarges
are now plotting to destroy him. Only love and great
courage can save him ...
Charles Dickens was a very popular
writer who lived in England in the time of Queen Victoria.
He said that A Tale of Two Cities was the best story
he ever wrote.
