Summary
Dissolute lawyer, Sydney Carton, falls passionately in love with the beautiful Lucie Manette. But Lucie loves only her husband, Charles Darnay, who has renounced his hated family name of St Everemonde and with it his connection with the corrupt French aristocracy, to live quietly in London. But the year is 1789, and when Paris erupts in flames as the mob storms the Bastille and overthrows the old order forever, there is a debt of honour that Charles must pay. The Bastille has fallen, but Charles must return to Paris to help an old servant. Inevitably, Charles is arrested and sentenced to die for his family's crimes. All seems lost until Sydney Carton appears. His moment has come, and at last he has the chance to redeem himself, to make up for a wasted life of drunkenness and dissipation in one act of supreme self-sacrifice for the woman he loves
