The pressures of the recession have left the Fletchers' business in trouble and the family in a similar state of disarray.

Chaplin And Company

Author:

Mave Fellowes

Synopsis:

Odeline Milk: a young lady from a sleepy market town with an obsession - you can guess what it is by the way she dresses: white collarless shirt, a waistcoat and billowing black trousers, the bowler hat. She's on her way to London, to make her name as a great mime artist. With the small inheritance left by her mother, she's bought herself a home, an old canal boat. What she doesn't know yet is that for some the city's canals have an appeal of their own. They are a sort of half-world, a good place to hide for a community of curious outsiders, all with their own stories to tell - stories which might help a certain young lady to think differently about life...
