Full Product Description
“Left alone, rubbed his knuckles into his eyes and wiped his nose on his shirt sleeves. The grave was filling fast, the sweating gravedigger anxious to finish the job and get home.”
In the early 17th century we meet orphaned Tom. His mother, before she died, told him he should go the Scrooby, the village where she was born. There, he would meet the Separatists, good, kind people who would look after him.
Should he join the Separatists – the Pilgrim Fathers – on their journey to the New World?

PilgrimMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
Tom’s Mother dies leaving him all alone as his father went off some time before. However he remembers something his Mother told him at the start of her illness, if he was ever in need, to go to Scrooby, there would be people there to help him. She also told him that from Gainsborough where they lived, he would need to go west and find The Great Road and that would take him to Scrooby.
With just the clothes he is wearing he sets off, finds the road and travels on. He gets so hungry that when he spies a basket of food left in the shade of a hedge, he is tempted to steal some and gets caught. By great good fortune he is rescued from the farmer’s wrath by a Mr Brewster and so starts an amazing adventure, sailing on the Mayflower to the new colonies across the ocean.
Tom Turner and his family are all imaginary, but the other people in the story really lived.
