Summary
In this wonderfully imaginative and highly adventurous debut novel, Eloise Kelly, an intelligent American who has decided that true romantic heroes are a thing of the past, leaves Harvard's Widener Library for England to finish her dissertation about the Scarlet Pimpernel and the Purple Gentian, a dashing pair of spies. What she uncovers there is that which many historians have missed: a secret beginning with a letter dated 1803 and introducing the Pink Carnation-the most elusive spy of all time who single-handedly saved England from Napoleon's invasion. Reading the secret history in hopes of unmasking the Pink Carnation's identity, Eloise discovers a passionate romance that nearly changed the course of world events. What happened to the Scarlet Pimpernel and the Purple Gentian? And how did the Pink Carnation save England? And will Eloise Kelly find a hero of her own--whom she never believed existed?
