The Standard Bearer
‘We know just what Mr Crockett will give us, and he gives it to us again in the manner which has gained him such popularity amongst a large section of novel readers. We look for Mr Crockett’s special Scotch humour, his special sentiment, and are not disappointed.’
‘His young girls, his ministers, his humorous characters are all known to us, and many will welcome them once more as old friends.’
Crockett raids the life of the Balmaghie minister John MacMillan for his fictionalised hero Quintin MacClellan who tells most of his adventures in his own voice. Interjections from his brother Hob give the reader another perspective and keep the humorous vein throughout what is essentially a love story, set in Covenanting times. The religious spirit of Richard Cameron and Peden the Prophet are seen in Quintin but never dampen the adventure or the romance.
