The Dew of Their Youth
Another of Crockett’s ‘smuggling’ stories this one bears the mark of Stevenson’s ‘Kidnapped’ as the romance of Duncan MacAlpine and Irma Maitland carries us from Galloway to Edinburgh through a series of adventures and challenges which keep the reader thrilled throughout.
In its sensational incidents, its mystery and excitement, Mr Crockett’s new novel recalls his great early success.
It has the same dash and go, the same atmosphere of romance, adventure and love as ‘The Raiders’
One of Crockett’s later stories, this ‘The Dew of Their Youth,’ takes us back to the 18th century smuggling tales. It bears the mark of Stevenson’s ‘Kidnapped’ and his own ‘The Raiders’ but the hero Duncan is even less of an heroic figure than either David Balfour or Patrick Heron. The story is not lacking in history, adventure or romance, nonetheless.
