The First Sir Percy [NOOK Book]

Overview

Quite enough in truth to make a man who is dizzy with love ten thousand times more dizzy still. And Diogenes was desperately in love, more so indeed than he had ever thought himself capable of being. He quietly unbuckled his sword, which clanged against the floor when he moved, and deposited in cautiously and noiselessly in an angle of the room. Then he tiptoed across to the virginal and knelt beside his beloved.

Meet the Author

Baroness Orczy was born in Hungary in 1865, the daughter of Baron Felix Orczy, a landed aristocrat and well-known composer and conductor. Orczy moved with her parents from Budapest to Brussels and Paris, where she was educated. She studied art in London and exhibited work in the Royal Academy.

She married Montagu Barstow and together they worked as illustrators and jointly published an edition of Hungarian folk tales.

Orczy became famous in 1905 with the publication of The Scarlet Pimpernel (originally a play co-written with her husband). Its background was the French Revolution and its swashbuckling hero, Sir Percy Blakeney, was to prove immensely popular. Sequel books followed and film and TV versions were later made.

Orczy also wrote detective stories which still prove popular and are equally acclaimed within this genre.

She died in 1947.

    This book should be a literary classic!

    Baroness Orczy's colorful writing style makes the fast-paced plot of this book unravel before the eyes of the reader leaving them commpletely spellbound! I love this book and this series! I encourage more people to read them!
