For young and pretty Fleurette the revolution seems far away - until an aristocratic neighbouring family is threatened. Now, the dangers are all too real, and she is accused of being a traitor. Can her father save her? Fleurette's father is - ironically - Armand Chauvelin. For the first time the villainous agent is forced to ask his arch-enemy, the heroic Scarlet Pimpernel, for help.

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. Orczy 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 of the French Revolution and 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.
