(From the publisher):
As the Punjohpur
sails down the River Mersey and Liverpool disappears from view, twenty-two year old Priscilla Thornton's noble ideas of serving her country by accompanying 241 children evacuees from Britain to safety in Canada are beginning to wane - and well they might. The year is 1940 and Britian is at war.
When fate assigns Cilla's childhhod sweetheart Ted Evans, a signaler in the Royal Navy, to the Punjohpur, he is furious to find Cilla has ignored his advice and is aboard.
Four nights later, at the height of an Atlantic storm the ship is torpedoed and in the chaos Cilla and Ted are separated.
Over the course of the next three months Cilla faces raw terror, cold hunger and captivity. Far from being a tale of failure and despair, this is the story of a young woman's emotional growth through her own courage and determination to survive and to be reunited with Ted.
