In the autumn of 1940, four children meet on a train. Behind them is London, under heavy aerial attack; ahead of them is a ship bound for the safety of Canada. Arthur has promised not to let his little brother, Philip, out of his sight. Pippa and Dora are on their own: polar opposites, yet bound together by the adventure of a lifetime.
But disaster strikes mid-Atlantic, and in the chaos one of the children makes a choice that will determine the course of all four lives.
As they grow into adulthood, forging their futures and falling in love, the survivors continue to reflect on the events of that night. It's not just what was lost that darkens their lives: what was rescued casts a long shadow, too. One of them has a terrible secret, and thinks it went down with the ship. A secret that could shatter what happiness they've managed to find.
But a secret is just a truth waiting to be revealed.
