Shipwright Martin Colwill’s apprenticeship is coming to an end . . .
Married to the most beautiful woman in Clovelly and buoyed by the prospect of a partnership in his employer’s business, it should be one of the happiest times of his young life. But all is not well with the newlywed. His wife’s ardour has cooled. The village still condemns him for ditching his fiancee and then marrying her best friend. And his employer begins to have doubts about the partnership. Then the philadering, roughneck publican of the Red Lion sets his sights on Martin’s wife and his world is thrown into turmoil.
Set in Clovelly in 1950, when Britain is still reeling from the Second World War and rationing remains in force, this is a story of lust, love, regret and self-discovery.
