In this sequel to the highland adventure Kidnapped, young David Balfour must defend himself and his friend, Alan Breck Stewart, against false murder charges, becoming further entangled in a political conspiracy between feuding Scottish clans. His new adventure will include shipwreck, murder, intrigue, and a Scottish lass named Catriona, with whom he falls in love at first sight. Stevenson considered this novel to be his best work.

Quotes & Awards

  • Catriona so reeks and hums with genius that there is no refuge for the desperate reader but in straightforward prostration.”

    Henry James

  • “Frederick Davidson delivers the text of this nineteenth-century novel with a thoroughly convincing variety of Scottish brogues and English accents.”

    " David Balfour (aka Catriona) may not be as action packed as the first one (Kidnapped), but it has a more complex plot and more heart. It was nice to see how David got into and out of trouble again, and I loved the ending. "

    " This is the sequel to Kidnapped. Good, but not as good as Kidnapped. "

    " This is a sequel to Kidnapped, which features both Balfour and one of my alltime favorite fictional characters -- Alan Breck Stewart. Unfortunately, Alan's role in this one is much diminished. The plot is complex and, for some reason, the Scottish diction and idiom are much more difficult than they were in Kidnapped. I missed some of the subtleties in the plot until I'd gotten too far past them and I suspect I missed some others altogether. This is definitely a book that could be enhanced by a skillful reader on audio book. "
