Overview

This book follows the adventures of Paris-born twins Pierre and Pierrette. It is set in the time of World War I France. The beginning of the story finds them attending school in one of the city's great cathedrals, and going home to their solitary mother each night. Things soon become a great deal more exciting, however, when the Germans bomb Paris and Papa returns to his family with a leg wound. After the hospital where he is recovering is bombed, the Twins and their parents leave Paris and embark on a journey to their grandparent’s village. Their adventures continue there. An exciting and absorbing book, illustrated with creative drawings by the author.

I hope you enjoy this book. When I first started reading books on my Nook Library I noticed that there are many free classics available. However the formatting is terrible and some are unreadable because of errors in the text. Therefore, I decided to start publishing quality classics that included chapter breaks, table of contents, linked chapters, and illustrations when available. Keep your eye out for inspirational stories from us, EirenikosPress.
