“It was only ever about doing up a boat together – to go to the sun…”

Tom and Beth share the same dream – to spend the remainder of their lives in the Canary Islands, running their own charter boat for tourists. As strangers, they took the biggest gamble in their lives in buying a derelict boat together, and two years back-breaking restoration work is about to pay off. They leave in a fortnight. Tom’s wayward son Robbie, in with local bad lads, will go with them. Sunshine, new start, new lives. But when Beth gets the worst news possible, Tom has a further surprise in store. There’s a new life ahead, but not in Santa Cruz.
