A romantic, warm and poignant story of love, forgiveness and triumph over adversity set in Clydebank and the West of Scotland during the Hungry Thirties and against the back drop of the building of the great ocean liner, the Queen Mary. Times are hard but a close-knit community always finds something to laugh at in the midst of its troubles.

Robbie Baxter is the boy next door, the boy Kate Cameron loves like a brother, but it's Jack Drummond who dazzles her. She meets him when she finally achieves her goal of taking classes at Glasgow School of Art in pursuit of her dream of becoming an artist.

When Jack shows his true colours, Kate turns to Robbie, but their growing happiness is fragile, threatened at any moment by the secret Kate dare not share with him.
