D. L. Murray is an Englishman's novelist -- or a Scot's. He assumes in this, perhaps, too thorough an understanding of the intricate pattern of the relations between the two countries in the troubled days when the young pretender stirred his people to heroic effort. We follow them to Edinburgh, to Derby, to fatal Drummossie Muir. Americans will find the recurrent use of dialect a hurdle, perhaps, but the romance between Charles Edward and Darthula and the mad adventure of the whole tragedy carry one through. A well-told tale, with its history well blended with fiction, and enough of both to satisfy all who like meaty historical drama.
