"Two hours later a small flotilla of rowboats began to land the crew at the head of the dock. In fact, there were as many Portuguese as Chinese among the sailors..." On Christmas Day in 1897, 85 year old Gilbert Rice is in failing health. He recounts his life-changing love affair as a young man in Belfast Port with prospects, in the 1830s as industrialisation is transforming the city, and Gilbert becomes aware of tensions old and new. When he meets Maria, a Polish exile from Russian persecution, he is drawn into a love affair that will drive him to an act that will alter his life and the town's for ever. "Wondrous prose", the author is alive to every nuance of his sea-salty, gritty and ambitious historical setting. 260pp in paperback.
