Time and Tide
On her mother’s death seventeen-year-old Anna Mason is thrust into running the household of Hawkshead Manor, near Whitby on the Yorkshire coast. Then she discovers that behind her father’s legitimate merchant business is a successful smuggling ring. When her father is murdered she is convinced that it is smuggler related and is determined to find the killer. But could there be another reason for this crime? Revelations about the men in her life shock her until she learns the truth. The story moves between Whitby, Hull, the Humber estuary, and Amsterdam.

After the death of her mother in 1813 seventeen-year-old Anna Mason assumes many of her mother's tasks in running the household of Hawkshead Manor. Jonathan Wetherby, a business colleague of her father's, is entranced by Anna but she doesn't feel she is able to return his affections while her father remains so devastated by his wife's death. However, whilst Anna's father, John Mason, is an outwardly respectable merchant in Whitby, he is also the brains behind a leading smuggling operation in the district, a fact which may have serious repercussions for Anna's future when she stumbles on the truth.
