Dr. Syn Series
Contains the following stories: A Smuggler Tale of Romney Marsh, Dr. Syn on The High Seas, Dr. Syn Returns, The Amazing Quest of Dr. Syn, The Further Adventures of Dr. Syn, The Shadow of Dr. Syn
Smuggling tales from a moonlit Romney Marsh
These books comprise the tales of Dr Syn in the coastal Kent village of Dymchurch in days long passed. There is the parish work and life of Dr Christopher Syn, the tales of piracy on the high seas with Captain Clegg and of course the exploits of the smuggles of Romney Marsh led by the extraordinary and dramatic Scarecrow.
These tales are humorous, romantic, exciting and evocative and although written in an older style of English that we use now it is a usage that adds to their old world pleasure.
The chapters are not in chronological order so best to check that elsewhere to enjoy these tales as they were written.
Dr Syn on Ebooks ! And just in time too as my ancient paperbacks were about to fall apart!
Lovers of Russell Thorndike's romantic hero or of Romney Marsh need no encouragement to re-read the stories that have been out of print for far too long.
For those who have never heard of Dr Christopher Syn, or Captain Clegg, or Mr Mipps, or the Scarecrow , now is your chance to discover them all and discover too the lure and fascination of this corner of England where people have wrestled against the sea for centuries and defended their heritage with courage and fortitude.
