Following the popularity and success of his first two books. 'The First of the Flood', and 'Slack Water', which are set in the 1960s and 1970s in and around Scarborough Harbour, Fred Normandale now continues the tale with his new book 'The Tide Turns'. Readers will quickly identify with the author's passionate belief in a fishing industry which has been central to his life since he was born into a prominent fishing family. It's certainly an absorbing read with a lot of humour. The book tells of storms, wrecks and salvage, strange catches and life at sea and ashore in the late 1970's and early 1980's with an emphasis on humour.
