Despite its inept title, [The Ghosts of Glencoe] is an excellent book, one of the best accounts of the famous massacre. Perhaps being a Scot without being a Campbell or a Macdonald gives the authoress insight without bias. Certainly she manages to convey the character of both Highlander and the Highlands very vividly. She also succeeds in the difficult exercise of presenting a piece of history as a novel that is convincing as a novel without distorting the facts.

"For Children from Ten to Fourteen: 'The Ghosts of Glencoe'," in The Junior Bookshelf, Vol. 31, No. 2, April, 1967, p. 123.
