The People's Friend Classics Collection - The River Calls Us Home
Originally published in 1990, this saga by Betty McInnes is one of "The People's Friend" most popular serials of all time and is now the first book in “The People’s Friend” Classics Collection.
From the moment of her birth, Christina Kennedy’s fortunes are inextricably entwined with those of her home city of Dundee. As the daughter of one of the whaling industry’s last captains, she enjoys a privileged and prosperous upbringing – but harder times lie just around the corner. Chrissie must choose between wealth and security, and the penniless jute-worker who has stolen her heart. And in the background, the storm clouds of World War I are gathering . . . Will Chrissie follow her heart or her head? And what will the consequences be for her family, now and in the future?
