Rafael Le Marre, introduced in the first of the Letzenstein Chronicles, collects--through unexpected circumstances--three companions whom he leads on an adventurous journey from Paris to the heart of Letzenstein. The Revolution of February, 1848, has erupted in Paris. Paul and Christie, both English, and Jeanne d'Estel of Valmay each have concerns of their own to pursue. But when the generous-hearted Rafael is arrested by political enemies, harrowing days follow. Will the proverbial "Phoenix" (which figures on the Le Marre family crest) arise again from the ashes? Important truths of character come to light, and Rafael's stature emerges, even while his life hangs in the balance. Recommended for ages 9 and up.
