PostSubject: Water Gypsies by Annie Murray   Sun May 20, 2007 10:46 am

It is 1942, and after a childhood of suffering in Birmingham Maryann Bartholomew has built a life of happiness and safety with husband Joel and their children, working the canals on his narrowboat, the Esther Jane. But the back-breaking work and constant childbearing take their toll on Maryann, and the tragic loss of her friend Nancy, followed by a further pregnancy, leads her to commit a desperate act which nearly costs her life.
The walls of her security are broken down when Joel suffers an accident and, to keep the boats working, Maryann is forced to allow Sylvia and Dot, two wartime volunteers, into the privacy of her life. And when she discovers that someone keeps calling for her at Birmingham's Tyseley Wharf, the dark memories of her past begin to overwhelm her. For that someone, who seems to be watching her every move, is becoming more dangerous than even she could imagine.
