Water Gypsies
It is 1942, and after a childhood of suffering, Maryann Bartholomew has built a happy life with her husband Joel and their children, working the canals on his narrowboat. But the work and constant childbearing take their toll on Maryann, and the tragic loss of an old friend, followed by a further pregnancy, lead her to a desperate act. When Joel suffers an accident, Maryann has to keep the boats working, and is forced to allow Sylvia and Dot, two wartime volunteers, into the privacy of their life. When she discovers that someone keeps calling for her at Birmingham’s Tyseley Wharf, dark memories begin to overwhelm her. For that someone is becoming more dangerous than even she could imagine . . .

The Doorstep Girls
Can two friends find hope in hard times?
Ruby and Grace have grown up in the poorest slums of Hull. Friends since early childhood, they have supported each other in bad times and good. But their families are bound together by more than friendship. The local cotton mill has provided work for Ruby and Grace since they were nine years old, and now years later both girls find themselves the object of attention from the mill owner’s sons. As times grow harder, and money ever scarcer, Grace becomes involved in campaigns against poverty and injustice, while Ruby is tempted into prostitution. The two girls are searching for something that could take them far away . . . But what price will they pay to find it?

Carla Scofield has looked after her family since she was a teenager but it’s never been a bother because there isn’t anything she wouldn’t do for them. Warm, friendly, and with the ability to make everyone around her laugh, she carries her burden proudly. As the years roll past, Carla sees life around her change dramatically. Wartime brings new challenges and a new job for Carla in a sewing factory. It also brings with it love and Carla has a chance at real happiness – but not everyone is rooting for her. With Christmas ahead of her, and her sights set firmly on love and the future, will she be too distracted to sense the danger before it’s too late?
