"Narrow Margins" is the true story of one family's journey from the financial crash of the Rover car company to an alternative and better lifestyle.
Faced with the loss of everything, the house, the cars and more importantly their rather lazy and indolent lifestyle, Marie Browne and her family took on the challenge of a whole new way of life.
Strapped for cash, the family buy a decrepit 70ft barge called Happy Go lucky which had been run as a floating hotel.
Outdated and in need of a complete refurbishment, Happy becomes their floating home.
First they need to learn the ropes and many pitfalls beset their adventures.
As they come to terms with living on a narrow boat, readers gain a fascinating insight into life in the slow lane.
