In the Reign of Terror: The Adventures of a Westminster Boy
By: G. A. Henty (1888)
Harry Sandwith, a Westminster boy, becomes a resident at the chateau of a French marquis, and after various adventures accompanies the family to Paris at the crisis of the Revolution. Imprisonment and death reduced their number, and the hero finds himself beset by perils with the three young daughters of the house in his charge. After hair-breadth escapes they reach Nantes. There the girls are condemned to death in the coffin ships, but are saved by the unfailing courage of their boy-protector.
