Book excerpt: 1908. Hester always loved her mother best, her father had always been a hard man to like, spending more time (and money) in the local than with his family. After her mothers sudden death, followed by an injury forcing her father to give up his job as the ferryman, Hester is placed in the position of carer for her young brother and sister. As the years pass Hester must row the ferry night and day to keep them all from starvation, while her hopes of working in a kitchen and one day becoming a cook, slip further and further away. But just how far is Hester willing to go to make her dream a reality? And as the threat of war comes ever closer to the Cornish coast, will it bring opportunities or despair for Hester and her family?
