the harbour girl wood val

Born in the mining town of Castleford, Val came to East Yorkshire as a child and has lived in Hull and rural Holderness where many of her novels are set. When close to her 15th birthday and after years of toil and drudgery, she was at last offered a position as a maid-of-all-work. For 15-year-old Ellie Lancton, that time has come all too soon. Sixteen-year-old Jeannie spends most of her time at Scarborough Harbour. Young Jeannie spends her days watching her mother and the other harbour girls sitting at the water's edge - mending nets, gutting herring - and waiting for her friend Ethan Wharton to come in on his father's fishing smack. From this moment, their marriage drifts apart. Buy The Harbour Girl by Val Wood from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
