Books, Manuscripts
This is a story of a fishing community following the herring shoals around the coast in their steam drifters, and is rich in local characters like Aggie the young widow, Jonathan the local doctor, Eric the skipper who retired too soon to make way for his sons. The shadow of the war refuses to go away for any of these but, with change, comes opportunity. Mary and Neil find their tribal and personal loyalties tested to the full as the herring fishing industry struggles to recover.
