Though on the surface a caring family man, Maryann and her sister, Sal, soon discover that he has another side to him. For Sal, it is too much to bear and she escapes, leaving Maryann to take revenge on Norman Griffin.The chance of a new life opens up when she befriends Joel Batholomew, who works on the canal. Aboard his narrowboat, she finds herself falling in love with her new life. Then Joel's feelings for Maryann begin to change, awakening all the old nightmares that she had long thought buried. The Narrowboat Girl is warm-hearted storytelling at its very best, and a testament to the overwhelming power of true love and its ability to overcome suffering.
