What interests me is the business of telling a story. Reading
Stevenson was as great a revelation as stumbling across Wilkie
Collins. This is the story of David Balfour, a Highland Whig, on
the run through Scottish Highlands in the company of one of the
great heroes of all time - Alan Breck, the Jacobite. It does what
Ian McEwan always says fiction should do - shows rather than tells.
Review by Nigel Williams, whose books include 'Fortysomething'
A finely honed, stirring adventure about the orphan David Balfour, who is kidnapped by his villainous uncle and escapes through the Scottish highlands, only to become involved in the Scottish struggle for independence. This edition features a new introduction by Margot Livesey.
