Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
It seems that poor Cosette will never escape from the wicked Monsieur and Madame Thenardier. She is only eight years old, but they force her to work hard every day. Jean Valjean has promised her mother that he will rescue the little girl - but Inspector Javert is on his trail. Will the fierce Inspector arrest Jean Valjean? If he does, will Cosette ever be set free? Cosette is not the only person who desperately needs help. When Marius is badly wounded, will even Jean Valjean's courage and determination be enough to save the brave young student?
