Catriona (David Balfour) is the sequel to Kidnapped, and starts at the exact moment that Robert Louis Stevenson’s more famous book ends - with Balfour in Edinburgh, standing cold and remorseful outside the offices of the British Linen Company. From there begins a rollicking series of adventures which sees our eponymous hero successively marooned on a remote island, traveling through Holland and France where he fights for his life with his old comrade Alan Breck, and finding time to fall in love with the spirited and beautiful Catriona, grand-daughter of the infamous ‘Highland Rogue’, Rob Roy.

Robert Louis Stevenson is a Scottish essayist, poet, and novelist whose best known works include Treasure Island, The Black Arrow, and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
A highly respected and enthusiastic audiobook narrator, David Case specialized in creating unique and interesting character voices.
This sequel to R.L. Stevenson's KIDNAPPED takes David Balfour further into intrigue and danger as he seeks to solve the Appin murder and absolve himself and his friend, Alan Breck. Frederick Davidson delivers the text of this nineteenth-century novel with a thoroughly convincing variety of Scottish brogues and English accents. The convoluted syntax and florid literary style of the time, as well as numerous unfamiliar Scottish terms, can make the story difficult for the ear to follow. The authenticity of the reading intensifies these elements, but the stout-hearted listener can find enjoyment in the challenge while experiencing a Romance novel by this beloved adventure author.
