Book summary

Written in 1893, 'Catriona' is the sequel to the highland adventure 'Kidnapped', and follows the further adventures of its hero, David Balfour. After arranging a safe passage to France for his comrade Alan Breck Stewart, David tries to clear their names of involvement in the murder of Colin Campbell of Glenure, the 'Red Fox'. The political complexities and intrigue surrounding the 'Appin murder' make Davidžs situation appear hopeless as he tries to find a path that will both save Alan Breck and James of the Glens, and keep his own neck out of the hangman's noose. With his life again in danger, the only person he can trust is Catriona, the daughter of the treacherous James More. Part adventure, part romance, and filled with atmospheric and evocative descriptions of old Edinburgh and the surrounding area, Stevenson considered 'Catriona' to be one of his finest works. [via]
