After a chance encounter with a seamstress at a Manchester market, in the notorious Angel Meadow slum, for sailor and spice merchant Diego Alaniz, life would change forever.
Formerly, a man happy to be married to view from onboard ship, suddenly he found the love of his life living on dry land.
How would he cope giving up his freedom as a sailor to become a loyal and loving husband?
Was his life on the high seas the reason he lost contact with both his daughters?
Would he ever see the girls, or their mother again?
