Marie Lisle use to have it all.  Her life was all planned out for her.  Born as a French noble, Marie could have anything her heart desired.  After her parents planned a profitable engagement to her cousin Pierre, Marie's future began to look brighter by the second.  However, Marie hated it that her life was planned out for her and yearned to be free.  Unfortunately, her wish came true in the worst way imaginable.
	As the French Revolution rolled in, peasants began to rise up in protest against nobles.  Marie and her family were thrown into jail, and for a noble there was no way out except through the guillotine.  Francois, a friend of Marie's helps to save her from the guillotine, but as peasants stream into the jails to slaughter all of the inmates, she is mistaken for a prisoner.  Only the mercy of a peasant boy, Jacques saves her from being beheaded, but not before Marie witnesses her parents being slaughtered before her eyes.  Snuck out of the prison, Jacques brings Marie to his home where she must live as a peasant.
	As Marie's eyes are opened to the world around her, she develops new and strange feelings, especially towards the boy who saved her life.  However, how can she truly begin to love him when she is hiding the biggest secret of all?  Yet, if she reveals her secret the only possible ending is death.  One thing's for sure, it's no easy task being a guillotine survivor.

I love how you started off this because it really draws in the reader! Great work and i love you kept the prologue on the shorter side instead of making it pages long!
