About the book: This book is the tale of a son and a daughter of two villages in the Kingdom of Fife, in Scotland.  Their similarities in background in coal-mining East Fife, and their decidedly different outlooks on life grounded on quite different life-styles, are confronted in the light of our national divided society over the past three hundred years since the time of Alexander Selkirk and Robinson Crusoe. Love thrived on conflicts of mind and ideologies. The book is an inspirational tonic.

Willie’s story:  A retired minister of the United Reformed Church, William J Nicol, (Bill, or Willie), MB ChB (St. Andrews), FRCS Ed, BA (OU), MSc in African Studies (Edinburgh) trained at Mansfield College, Oxford, and was Ordained in 1990. Before this and pastorates in Newcastle upon Tyne, Ashington, Hobkirk and other border towns, Bill was a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Royal Halifax Infirmary where he specialised in hip replacement surgery. He has travelled widely, notably to South Africa. His home is now in Kelso.

Margaret’s story: A retired Assistant Principal Teacher of Mathematics, Margaret Deas Thomson obtained a BSc at St Andrews University and, after a year’s teacher training, embarked on a lifetime of teaching at Bell Baxter High School, in Cupar.  With the satisfaction of a fulfilling career behind her, she has lived in her hometown of Buckhaven, in Fife, all her days.
