Product Description: 

A Tale of Two Cities: The 'two cities' are Paris and London. Dr. Manette, a physician, having been called to treat a peasant and his sister, realize they have been abused by the Marquis de St. Evremonde and his brother. To ensure Dr. Manette's silence, the Marquis has him confined for years in the Bastille. Great Expectations chronicles the progress of Pip from childhood through adulthood. As he moves from the marshes of Kent to London society, he encounters a variety of characters. Dickens shows the dangers of being driven by a desire for wealth and social status.
