Thank you for following me to these pages. I just completed Revolution and was astounded by everything I’d learned from it. If you read my book review at the Corner Cafe, http://debrahutchens.wordpress.com/ I gave an earful on this wonderful novel released by Jennifer Donnelly in October 2010. It speaks of the French Revolution but in a ‘novel’ way never before done. At least, not in a way I’m aware of. From the point of view of Alexandrine Paradis (who lived during its uprising) and that of Andi Alpers, who lives in modern-day New York and develops a deeper understanding of it through Alex’s words. One that takes her beyond the pages of a history book, yet through the storytelling of a simple, heart-wrenching diary that Andi discovers while on a trip to Paris.
