Review Text

I have always loved Stevenson and always will, ever since he wrote of a boy ill in bed fashioning that clothy world of hills and valleys in The Land of Counterpane from A Child's Garden of Verses. The same small boy saw from his bedroom window the rock in the pond of Heriot Row gardens and later, to bring some magic into a rainy holiday at Braemar, drew the map that became the island of Ben Gunn, the Hispaniola and pieces of eight. He also translated his capacity to leap from dank Edinburgh to the hot South Seas into reality - he died in Samoa, where the natives had built a road to his house called, to this day, 'The Road of the Loving Heart'. Review by Frank Delaney, author of 'The Sins of the Mothers' (Kirkus UK)show more
