I personally would NEVER send any part of my family to France at thus point in history. It became so bad to the point that the members if Maximillien's orginization were being put on trial. Churches were closed religious holidays were nonexistant. In fact there were so many "law breakers" that they would make them dig huge holes and put them in cannons and pile one dead bodie after another and most were not dead so they werw buried alive. Scary, but true!!!!!!!
This was a very nice book. I don't really like reading about the French Revolution, but this made me like it. It was good and exiting. It surprized me all the time. I think I'll read it again.
