9780140436556: Redgauntlet (Penguin Classics)

Set in the mid-eighteenth century in the fictitious third Jacobite rebellion, Redgauntlet (1824) tells of Darsie Latimer, a student of law who becomes embroiled in a plot to put Prince Charles Edward (aka, Bonnie Prince Charlie) on the British throne. The events in Redgauntlet never actually took place, but they are probable, and form the culmination of Scott's series of Jacobite novels.

Review:

Yet another triumph in this marvellous series. Here are six English-language novels which I think great and which I do come back to. They all pass an essential test: that with each reading you find something new in them, and so they never exhaust what they have to say ... Redgauntlet, a warm and wonderfully relaxed novel celebrating, among other things, friendship, is also a penetrating psychological study of attachment to a lost cause. -- Allan Massie Yet another triumph in this marvellous series.
