Summary :

It was an earthquake in Greece that made orphans of Mina and her brother, destroyed their home, killed their parents, and left the children alone in the world. Their father had kept an old shack of a service station, but Porphyras dreamed of shining rows of petrol pumps with himself in bright uniform as garage hand. Now even the old shack had gone, and the orphans were sent to a strange home on the dark, cold side of Europe. It was a kind home, but the children were restless. Mina disappeared, and Porphyras stowed away in a long-distance lorry. Mina had her adventures, but for Porphyras, life was just beginning.
