1915. As a child it never mattered to Blake that he had no mother, that no one knew who his father was. He was secure in his grandparents' love, happy on their farm in the Yorkshire dales. But when his grandparents die suddenly, Blake's world collapses.
Taken in by a neighbouring farmer as hired help, Blake's life becomes focused on the land--and on his secret love for Annie, his employer's daughter.
Annie may love Blake too, but she knows she doesn't want to spend her life on the farm. So Blake leaves for the busy shipyards of Sunderland, determined to make his name. He swears one day he will come back for Annie--but can he be sure she will wait for him?

Enjoyed this despite the narrator reading like a news reader on tv.... Did not seem a perfect match for this, someone with a softer and more varied tone might have been better. But after a bit you are able to forget about it and just enjoy the story which is great.
I really enjoyed this book. it was a great listen. perhaps a little predictable, but still good
