February 1809: The rural community in Ponteland, Northumberland begins to stir after one of the harshest winters on record.
As the land is slowly brought back to life, impoverished farm labourer, Jamie Charlton, desperately seeks work.
Jamie has more problems than most. With a wife and four hungry children to feed, a mountain of debt and creditors baying for payment, he lurches from one crisis to another, stubbornly refusing help from his anxious brother, William.
Based on real events, February 1809 is a day in the life of real people and is a prequel to the novel, Catching the Eagle.
