We have been speaking a great deal about him the last few days, have we not? Making the rounds of the wonderful circle of Party goers, it would seem that Sir Percy Blakeney is quite the most popular hero of them all. And 'tis only as it should be...
To those of you who have not yet discovered Baroness Orczy's masterpiece, I encourage you to acquire a copy (or if desperate, click here) with all speed and prepare to embark on the delightful and thrilling adventure of joining the ranks of the League. Also highly recommended are the Librivox audio recordings by Karen Savage, a beautiful and expressional reader who not only has a perfect British accent, but speaks French as well!
To those of you who are already enamored with all things pertaining to the small red flower and it's enigmatic namesake, I salute you. You have impeccable taste.
And to all, be sure to go visit The Day Dream, an absolutely wonderful blog devoted to the celebration of The Scarlet Pimpernel.

Are you in the League?
Be sure to share your test results! ;)
