Talking about a REVOLUTION
Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly is a book of historical fiction, taking place in the current era, in Brooklyn Heights NY and during the French Revolution in Paris. The author has intertwined two wonderful stories and created a fantastic read, a page turner, a romance, a mystery and an adventure. I learned a lot about the French Revolution, and it was certainly a fascinating time.Coincidentally, National Geographic ran a cover story about the catacombs of Paris, which is where most of the drama of this book takes place. Check out the interactive maps of the city underground. I recommend this book for all readers.
