Song of the sea: one woman's journey through love and loss to find her voice with The Fishwives Choir

Dolby, Jane, author

A friendship with Colin, her shy yet kind neighbour, develops into something more. Their first kiss takes place at sea and the rhythms of the fishing community become part of Jane's life. But then Jane faces the disappearance of her husband when his boat overturns at sea. As Jane struggles with her grief, she must fight to keep a roof over her family's heads. In time, she triumphs, building a legal case to settle his affairs, as well as rebuilding a life for her and their children. Over time, this remarkable woman forms a plan to give something back to the community that has helped her - founding The Fishwives Choir, in the style of the Military Wives. Bringing together 80 women from fishing communities up and down the country to release a charity single, Jane gives a voice to women previously unheard and finds herself thrust into the national spotlight
