The Red Necklace and The Silver Blade

Gardner, Sally. The Red Necklace. Dial, 2008
Gardner, Sally. The Silver Blade, Dial, 2009

These are both good stories of the French Revolution. The second book does become a bit tedious, but the information about the French Revolution is accurate and the relationship between the Gypsy boy and the aristocratic girl is interesting. Again, a good vacation read.
