Publisher's Summary

Callie determines from an early age not to follow in her beloved mother's footsteps. Having married into a fishing family near Hartlepool, her mother's life has been nothing but hard work, unrelenting poverty, and narrow horizons. While gathering sea coal at the water's edge, Callie happens to meet Patricia Lazarus and her brother, James. Though their backgrounds are very different, a friendship is formed that will last forever. When the Lazarus' great uncle offers Callie the post of companion to Patricia, she realises that this could be the first step in her journey to a better life.

Wonderful story!

This story was a wonderful look at the life of women in the past, and their strengths and wisdom that was necessary to not only survive but to be successful in their lives. The narrator's voice and characterizations of each of the cast was excellent. Her voice imagery was lovely and easy to visualize. This was my first audio book with and I am so happy that I have become a member.
