From his origins as an illegitimate child in the slums of Glasgow, Fergus Lamont sets out to reclaim his inheritance and to remake his identity as soldier, poet and would-be aristocrat.

John Robin Jenkins OBE (11 September 1912 – 24 February 2005), generally known as Robin Jenkins, was a Scottish writer of thirty published novels, the most celebrated being The Cone Gatherers. He also published two collections of short stories. Robin Jenkins was born in Flemington near Cambuslang in 1912; his father died when John was only seven years old and he and his three siblings were brought up by his mother in straitened circumstances.

At odds with his origins and unsettled in his aristocratic pretensions, Fergus Lamont reaches middle age before he is offered at least the hope of redemption in a love affair with an island woman.
