Sometimes spelt Raphael in error?
Sabatini was dismissive of his earlier novels, but I enjoy some of them even more than a couple of his late works. "The Trampling of the Lilies" is one of those early gems. Yes, it lacks the historical detail of his later writing, but it more than makes up for that with a compelling story and an engaging, nail-biting romance between two who are very much from different sides of the tracks. Set during the French Revolution, "The Trampling of the Lilies" features an exceptionally non-aristocratic hero, a heroine with much to learn, and some really loathsome villains. If you want a page-turner written with elegance and filled with action, intrigue, and romance, look no further.
This is the worst Sabatini book I have ever read. He writes as if Robespierre was a okay guy and not a villain. He also makes out all aristocrats to be bad. I liked Scaramouch which is one of his other books on the French Revolution. If this is your first Sabatini book try Captain Blood or Mistress Wilding.
This is a wonderful historical fiction. Full of action, adventure, love and history, of course. I loved this book from first to last. Rafael Sabatini has an exquisite writing style. And in the 3 books I have read of his so far, he always has me laughing with wondrous amusement at the great lengths of foolishness the main male character will go to for the "love of his life". The men are not foolish throughout the book, usually only once, maybe twice, but it is amusing and has me hopeful that real men of honor everywhere go to great lengths for the woman they love. If I could change one thing about Sabitini's books, it is that they not end so abruptly. They are not bad endings, but they end before I wish them to.

This is a good, sound, albeit early and somewhat weak, Sabatini novel. It's his first in the setting he handled best, revolutionary France. The style is mostly vintage Sabatini, though the plot is somewhat weak by his later standards; the ending works both intellectually and emotionally, though the mature Sabatini would have come up with something more satisfying. The plot, as usual, is assisted by coincidences and characters acting in the one way they would obviously avoid; but it avoids the unacceptable holes of most of his earlier novels.
I enjoyed this book because it feels like historical fiction more than simply fiction. I learned more about the French Revolution in this book than many other history books!
