The Companions of Jehu by Alexandre Dumas

Packed with tragedy, love, and derring-do, this exciting historical tale constitutes a must-read for fans of Dumas’s work, and would make for a great addition to any bookshelf.

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.
