Sequel to ‘Men of the Moss Hags’ the adventures of Will and
Wat Gordon continue. A fast paced, musketeer style story of Covenanters in ‘The
‘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.
