When a frightened girl and boy arrive on the Twiss family's doorstep to escape the Blitz, Charlotte wonders how she will keep her war guests from missing their parents back home, or from cowering every time a plane flies overhead. Though the war is being waged across the Atlantic, Charlotte begins to feel its danger, as her brother George defies their parents and enlists in the Navy.

After months of receiving letters from overseas, suddenly there is no word from him - has the unthinkable happened and George's ship been sunk by a German submarine?

Charlotte Twiss's diary shows her innermost feelings about her life on the Canadian homefront, as she helps her war guests "settle in" and wonders whether her brother is safe from harm.

'' I can hardly bear to write this. It is by far the worst thing yet. Today we hard that a ship called City of Benares, which was bringing more British children to Canada, was sunk and a lot of the people were drowned . More than eighty Children died! It sounded like Jane's memory about being lost on the ship, only it was not a dream. It was real. Every time I remember, I feel sick. I wish I could not see it in my mind.''
