A-Z Wednesday

A-Z Wednesday is hosted by Vicky of Reading at the Beach. To join, look here.

This weeks letter is: K

Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson

Book Description:
When young David Balfour's father dies and leaves him in poverty, he tracks down his Uncle Ebenezer to seek his inheritance. But his uncle is a mean, nasty man with a dark family secret. David finds himself in terrible danger when he is kidnapped and taken prisoner on board a ship bound for slavery he must escape. With the help of daring rebel Alan Breck, David faces a wild adventure as he is hunted across the desolate Scottish moors.

My thoughts:
My oldest son, Caleb, recently listened to this book, which he really enjoyed. I was only able to hear parts of it, but it sounded really exciting. Hopefully, I'll be able to enjoy the whole story some time in the future.


  1. Sounds good!

  2. I read it long time back and loved it. I have gifted numerous copies to my nephews and nieces!
