The Wind that Shakes the Barley: A Novel of The Life and Loves of Robert Burns by James Barke

This classic biographical novel based upon the early life of the great Scottish poet shows the early forces that shaped Burns and his work - the poverty and strict morality, the liberating experience of education, and his delighted awakening to the beauty of the natural world, and later to the allure of 'the lassies'.
