Answer: A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. One of Dickens most famous novels, and a personal favorite of mine. Set during the French Revolution where madness is taking over the city. It is such a vivid look at the end of the eighteenth-century and the cultural changes that were occurring, specifically in Paris and London. Stop in the store and pick-up the special edition Oprah book club that has both A Tale of Two Cities and Great Expectations. What better way to spend your summer than catching up on the classics.
