Pimpernel is the premier brand for placemats, coasters, trays and accessories, with an outstanding and unique range that is renowned for its high quality. Pimpernel’s exclusive homewares, textiles and gifts are created to suit all tastes, and make wonderful additions to the home. In a moment the pleasant oak-raftered coffee-room of the inn became the scene of hopeless confusion and discomfort. At the first announcement made by the stable boy, Lord Antony, with a fashionable oath, had jumped up from his seat and was now giving many and confused directions to poor bewildered Jellyband, who seemed at his wits' end what to do.

Readers thrill to the gallantry of the Pimpernel, whose nom de guerre derives from the wildflower he employs as a calling card. A scourge to the French authorities, the Pimpernel is the darling of the people — particularly Marguerite Blakeney, who scorns her foppish husband, Sir Percy, as ardently as she admires the Pimpernel.   The Scarlet Pimpernel is the original masked hero adventure story. During the French Revolution a secret society of English gentlemen is formed by the enigmatic Scarlet Pimpernel, to rescue their fellow French nobility. Marguerite's brother is threatened by a Frenchman, who demands information on the Scarlet Pimpernel in return for her brother's safety.

Read The Scarlet Pimpernel by author Baroness Emmuska Orczy, FREE, online. (Table of Contents.) This book and many more are available. The author maintains the air of mystery around the Scarlet Pimpernel partly by having most of the action occur offstage. Primarily we have Marguerite onstage, and we don’t mind this, for she has a complexity that is lacking in most characterizations in adventure stories.

The Scarlet Pimpernel delivers many positive messages about heroism, friendship, self-sacrifice, true love, and creative thinking.

Some elements that were standard at the time, notably much hand-wringing about being a poor weak woman, and a Jewish character who's equal parts Fagin and Stepin Fetchit, are jarring today -- but also a bit nuanced, as Marguerite proves anything but weak and 5/5.
