Today's story - Backwards And Forwards by Cathy Feeny - is the last in a series of specially commissioned stories which take boats and boating as their theme.

When Danny - an American academic working in London - takes his family on holiday to the banks of a Scottish loch, there's an uninhabited island to visit across the water. But Danny's the only one who can row. And the boat can only carry one other person at a time. As he rows backwards and forwards, Danny has a unique opportunity to discover a little more about each of his family in turn.

A series of specially commissioned tales inspired by rivers and boats.
