In Paris, the fires of revolution explode in uncontrollable fury. The noble goals of freedom fighters became the crazed bloodbath called the Reign of Terror and three exiles become trapped in a nightmare of mock trials and rage. Dr. Manette, falsely imprisoned for decades; his daughter, Lucie, whose stunning beauty was matched by her loyalty and grace; and Charles Darnay, who abandoned a royal title are thrown together in a desperate effort to survive. Together, their love touches the hearts of even stodgy banker Mr. Lorry and cynical, jaded lawyer Sydney Carton.

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way - in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.
