Gideon Fletcher grows up in a town called Wallsend in northeastern England where proud, hardworking men build ships at the local shipyard – the center of the town’s history and economy. Gideon dreams of doing more with his life, though, and leaves his home and the girl he loves to travel the world. When he returns after 15 years, he finds that everything has changed dramatically, spurring him to join the town in a monumental effort to fight for their collective future.
