She is one of the few customers that treats him as a person. When Donald drowns after a drunken fall into the harbour, Katherine is left destitute and struggling to support her children. Their relationship deepens and develops into a physical passion that must be kept hidden from society. As their lives unfold they are caught up in a web of Edwardian values and world events.
