It was five o’clock, and the dawn had already broken. Slender streaks of white and rose fingered the wide skies, and a chorus of blackbirds were calling in the elms behind the mill.

It was five o’clock, and the dawn had already broken. y of tiny wings as a wren flew busily in and out of a hawthorn hedge along one side of the yard, and from a neighbouring farm she could hear the barking of dogs. She had heard her father and brothers come to bed not an hour ago, when the breeze which had been blowing steadily all through the night, finally stilled.

Children of the tide. This book is the third in the series and unfortunately I read the second book "Annie" first but nevertheless, each book is wonderful on their own and having made that error, I still absolutely loved each of them. Ms. Wood has the most amazing way of bringing the characters to life so that you will either love them or hate them. As a huge fan of Catherine Cookson, I can see why the first book in this series won the "Catherine Cookson" award, the subject matter and writing style are very much like Ms Cookson.

For my family with love. They were joined by other women and some children as news spread of the Polar Star’s early return, and the sound of their boots and wooden pattens clattered on the cobbles as their numbers grew. Running now, they turned out of the narrow street into the wider Salthouse Lane to avoid the steadily increasing crush of men who were arriving for work at the shipyards and, as they came in sight of the Quay, Maria drew in her breath sharply.
