The Page of the Duke of Savoy Vol. II. by Alexandre Dumas

It is the fictionalised tale of a woman who is forced to impersonate a man – and a page no less, in order to remain by the side of her beloved Duke. A tense marriage of mystery and romance, this masterful story will appeal to lovers of historical fiction, and constitutes a must-read for anyone who has read and enjoyed Dumas’s work.
Alexandre Dumas (1802–1870) was a famous French writer. He is best remembered for his exciting romantic sagas, including “The Three Musketeers” and “The Count of Monte Cristo”. Despite making a great deal of money from his writing, Dumas was almost perpetually penniless thanks to his extravagant lifestyle. His novels have since been translated into nearly a hundred different languages, and have inspired over two hundred motion pictures.
