1. Introduction
A. "It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known." (364).
B. Lucie Manette gets news from Jarvis Lorry a business man who works for Tellson's Bank that her dad who was imprisoned in France is still alive. She goes with Mr Lorry to Paris and brings him back to England. Charles Darnay, a french aristocrat, leaves behind his elite life and makes a decision of moving to England. Darnay is charged of being a French spy and was saved by Carton and Mr. Stryver who are lawyers. Lucie falls in love with Darnay and marries him, but Carton secretly loves her. Then, there was a fire of revolution all over France which was lead by Madame Defarge and her husband. Darnay then gets a letter by his servant (Gabelle) who was in Paris and asks to save him as he promised. As Darnay goes to France to save him, the revolutionaries catch him and throw him in prison because for being a French aristocrat. Dr. Manette talks to the people and gets Darnay out of prison but he was charged again on the same day and was thrown to prison again and this time he was found guilty. Carton this time sacrifices his life to save Darnay as he promised Lucie earlier that he would do anything for her happiness. By doing this Carton proves that his love was true for Lucie.
