Summary
It is 1942, and after a childhood of suffering in Birmingham, Maryann Bartholomew has built a happy life with her husband Joel and their children, working the canals on his narrowboat. But the work and constant childbearing take their toll on Maryann, and the tragic loss of an old friend, followed by a further pregnancy, lead her to a desperate act. When Joel suffers an accident, Maryann has to keep the boats working, and is forced to allow Sylvia and Dot, two wartime volunteers, into the privacy of their life. When she discovers that someone keeps calling for her at Birmingham's Tyseley Wharf, dark memories begin to overwhelm her. For that someone is becoming more dangerous than even she could imagine..
