Synopsis
• Dickens' Classic 1859 novel A Tale of Two Cities is bound in this edition with a BONUS NOVEL, his next book published in 1860, Great Expectations.

A Tale of Two Cities
'It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.' So begins Dickens A Tale of Two Cities, the pre-French Revolution story set in London and Paris and one of the most famous novels in history.
Jarvis Lorry's urgent services are required. His task is to meet a young woman at Dover named Lucie Manette who is believed to be an orphan. But her father, Doctor Manette, has been found in France and Lorry's job is to accompany her to Paris for a reunion. Much has happened to Lucie's father during his disappearance, however, including 18 years in prison where he has been driven mad. Lucie sets out to help him find his way back.
Meanwhile, in 1780. Charles Darnay is accused of treason against England but he is acquitted with the assistance of his drunken colleague Sydney Carton. Watching the proceedings are none other than Lucie and Doctor Manette. It is not long before their lives soon intertwine.

Great Expectations
Six-year-old Pip is living with his sister and her husband, Joe, when he is invited to a castle owned by Miss Havisham, a wealthy old woman who was jilted at the alter and has never since removed her wedding dress. Pip has been summoned to play with Miss Havisham’s adopted child, Estella, and he soon falls in love with Estella, but there is little hope for Pip, an orphan. That does not stop him dreaming of marrying Estella as he matures, however. Little does Pip know his fortunes are about to take a turn, and he will soon discover what life is like as a gentleman.
