Overview

The coming of age of a young girl in Revolutionary France as she learns about murder, greed, and the danger of love.

Forced away from France by her devious guardian on the eve of the French Revolution, Countess Lisbette Jonquiere must deliver an important package to further the royalist cause. In England, she discovers the package is full of blank papers, the address is false, and she's penniless. Stranded in a Cornish village, Lisbette toils in a bawdy tavern and falls in love with a man who lives under the shadow of his missing wife.

Immersed in poverty, Lisbette realizes what sparked the revolution in her homeland. Her past catches up to her when desperate men hunt her down: they demand the money her deceased father embezzled from the revolutionaries. Lisbette learns the truth of her father's death, and her lover's involvement in his wife's murder.

Once again, Lisbette faces the threat of losing everything.
