It’s 1942. Maryann Bartholomew has built a life of happiness with her husband Joel and their children, working the canals on his narrowboat. But the back-breaking work and constant childbearing take their toll on Maryann. Joel suffers an accident, and to keep the boats working, Maryann is forced to allow two wartime volunteers into the privacy of their 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 life. For that someone, who seems to be watching her every move, is becoming more dangerous that even she could imagine...
