      Fast and loose. I looked into that and discovered Dumas wrote primarily for the burgeoning Paris weekly newspaper market who carried serialised novels at a chapter a piece. Aware of Louise's attachment, the king sends Raoul to England indefinitely as a diplomatic envoy. Community Reviews Sign up or Log in to rate this book and submit a review.

Raoul, impassible, and a little disengaged by the attention of his hosts, looked from his place through the open window at the gardens and the statues which peopled them.

He even built himself a castle-themed chateau to represent the abode of Edmund Dantes from his The Count of Monte Cristo.
