Item description for QUEST FOR A KELPIE Large Print by Mary Hendry Frances...

Historical intrigue for children 9-12, printed in large print. set in a Scottish fishing village in the days of Bonnie Prince Charlie. Jeannie Main will make a king, and break a king, come four times into the shadow of the gibbet, and risk her life by riding the Kelpie, the fearsome water monster. That's what wee Jeannie is told during the 1745 Rising, as Prince Charles Edward Stewart makes his desperate attempt to win back his grandfather's crown from the Hanoverian King George. Ach, blethers! But Jeannie's prophecy comes terrifyingly true. She must make bitter choices, where either way could bring death or ruin for herself or those around her, and then face the consequences of those decisions. This is not a comfortable, cosy story. 12-year-old Jeannie is no sweet little angel, but a tough, hardy little fisher quean. But she faces life with a lively humour, honesty, courage, and immense loyalty to her family and friends, which make her instantly likeable.

Reviews - What do customers think about QUEST FOR A KELPIE Large Print?

Not what I hoped for ...  Nov 8, 2003
After reading the amazingly fantastic book, Quest for a Maid, I came upon this book, which is by the same author, hoping to have the same experience. This was not the case. This book was confusing, with too many names to keep straight. It was a good plot, yet not very well told. I kept counting the pages till I'd be done. It follows Jeannie, a young girl, in her adventures. It is during the 1700s and is set in Scotland. Jeannie experiences pain, death, meaning, belief, and much more, but after a while you don't care what happens. You shouldn't feel a need to read this book, and if you are looking for a exciting, well-written book, read Quest for a Maid instead.
An ok book  Nov 29, 2000
This book was very hard to follow, but it had an interesting plot.
