Trouble at Fishers Wharf

War is a terrible thing.  Ruth's two brothers were far away serving their country.  She didn't know what to do. She couldn't leave her father.  She volunteers at the Fishermen's Mission.

Ruth thought she was there to serve others.  But she learns much more about herself.  

You can't help liking Ruth.  A lot of her decisions are made by her heart.  And this has caused some heartbreak.

I think I know who I want her to land up with.  I won't tell but I can forsee a future book telling that story.  

I received this from the publisher to review this book.




Trouble at Fishers Wharf

The winds of war bring uncertainty but also opportunity…

With the outbreak of War, the fishing fleet is confined to port, bringing hardship to the families and businesses of Fishers Wharf.

Ruth Evans awaits the safe return of her father’s last trawler carrying her wayward brother Henry, the future of the family business. But unbeknown to their father, Henry sees war as a chance to break free from the constraints of his privileged background and follow his heart.

Much is expected of Ruth. Her marriage to Arthur Marshall will help realise her father’s dream uniting two of the largest trawler companies in Grimsby. But will Ruth choose the path of duty or destiny?

Ruth’s friendship with hardworking Letty Hardy sustains her. Separated by class, they are united through their work for the Fishermen’s Mission as Letty battles to keep her business and family afloat while husband Alec serves on the minesweepers.

Can they navigate the treacherous waters ahead – or will they be caught by hidden dangers?
