To the Cry of the Sand’ling

Binnie, Tom


This is the story of three Scottish generations for an influential Scottish family: David Miller, his father Tom, and his daughter Rosie. It follows their lives through two early 18th century timelines: Rosie growing up in Cupar, a small town in East Fife; Tom, mercantile trading in Delft; and David attending an orphan school in Edinburgh before developing into an inspiring Scottish teacher.

It is a detailed story of their three lives during a time of great social, political and economic upheaval. Each one is strongly influenced by the lovers and friends they encounter on their life’s journey.

It is a story of love, loss, and betrayal. It is a story of redemption, the value of learning and the acceptance of change.

This is a story of the influence of women in an age where history tells only of men.

An engaging mystery adventure, full of humour and pathos.'
‘A wonderfully absorbing and subtle tale.’
‘Full of character and human understanding.'
