Download Description
Although this book does not follow the same style of adventure Dumas had written in his Musketeer stories, this book has been said to be his best. This story is filled with romance, love, excitement, and of course, Tulips. An excellent "happily ever after" ending. A must read! Please Note: This book is easy to read in true text, not scanned images that can sometimes be difficult to decipher. The Microsoft eBook has a contents page linked to the chapter headings for easy navigation. The Adobe eBook has bookmarks at chapter headings and is printable up to two full copies per year. Both versions are text searchable.
