Lochinvar

    By

    'The story is always bright and full of stir and movement. In places, notably the description of the island caves, we recognise the author at his best. There is plenty of rapid and varied incident before Wat can come upon the traces of his lost lady, but his purpose is unflinching as his love is ardent.' The sequel to 'Men of the Moss Hags' is set in the 1680's and the story centres round Wat Gordon of Lochinvar, cousin to Will of Earlstoun. Lighter in tone than its prequel, Lochinvar is cut from the same cloth as The Three Musketeers and Les Miserables, but with a distinctive Scottish flavour. There is adventure, espionage and of course a love story, which travels from Holland to the Highlands as well as spending a deal of time in Galloway. In all locations Crockett does justice to his skills of natural description. Bearing little relation to the poetic version of 'Young Lochinvar' this is nonetheless a great adventure romance story. 'Crockett may succeed to some extent in doing for Galloway what Scott did for Midlothian and other parts of Scotland.' S.R.Crockett was a bestselling author from the 1890's through to his death in 1914. As Scotland's 'forgotten bestseller,' his work still appeals to those who love stories packed with history, adventure and romance and is now brought back into publication for a new generation by Ayton Publishing Limited, to mark the centenary of his death.
