An historical adventure story full of intrigue and romance. Sybil is forced to leave school at fourteen and the First World War brings her further heartache. In 1918 she escapes to live with a new family. As a nanny she travels to Switzerland and Argentina where she meets and falls in love with William. Their different backgrounds cause tensions but their pioneering life at the foot of the Andes is full of laughter, excitement and the occasional sadness. Just after their daughter's first birthday Sybil is given a baby boy. His mother has killed herself. The family is trapped in Buenos Aires during the Second World War. There is fear of invasion when the Graf Spe, a German battleship is sighted in the River Plate. Sybil encourages William's war effort but is frightened when he disappears for long periods. In 1949 they return to England and live happily in Sybil's home town until an official letter arrives. Sybil's life is turned upside down by the hidden secrets and the ultimate betrayal.
