Henty's novels often portray young protagonists who "retain their essential Britishness years after leaving Britain and their families.
The novel depicts the French Revolution in highly negative and conservative terms, emphasising the ever-increasing violence and chaos and introducing numerous secondary characters who hate the Revolution and its proponents. Supporters of the Revolution are portrayed as universally bloodthirsty and out of control, and the French nation as a whole is said to be descending into madness while Britain stands as a stalwart symbol of imperial strength.

The contrast between British and French social classes is often directly addressed: the French class system is more deeply and strictly divided than the British, who are described as having less distinct class divisions.
And in the historical setting of the French Revolution, the animosity between the aristocracy and the French peasantry is apparent — much of the St. Caux family are killed for the sake of their aristocratic status.
