Rafael le Marre collects 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. Important truths of character come to light, and Rafael's stature emerges: the "Phoenix" (which figures on the le Marre family crest) arises again from the ashes. The events of this small, fictional country of Letzenstein imaginatively reflect the political turmoil of the late 1840's. She writes: "In all my books for children I have concentrated on personal relations, usually with the more serious confrontations between the adults - but also adult/child and child with child - occasioned by the general events going on at the time."

Ages 9 and up
