THE RIVER FOLK: For young Mary Ann, daughter of a wife-beating drunk, life has always been tough. That is until "Battling Bessie Ruddick" adopts her into her bustling family. As she grows into an attractive young woman, Mary Ann falls for Bessie's son, Dan, and she becomes a skipper's wife. But life aboard ship is not for her and only the arrival of daughter Lizzie keeps the marriage together. Yet, tragically, Mary Ann abandons the family, seduced by the promise of a happier life. It is now up to Lizzie to help her father, until, disturbingly, her life starts to follow the same pattern as her mother's . . .

Working with freezing fingers to gut the precious herring, she follows the fleet south, traveling far away from her Scottish home. When her beloved father's trawler goes missing, Jeannie must face up to life on her own. But her fiery temper and fierce independence attract powerful and devious enemies. Amidst the great social upheaval of the inter-war years, Jeannie must search again for the real love she has always denied herself . . .
