Publisher Comments:

It is 1940 and Britain is evacuating its children to keep them "out of harm's way." Ted Johns, son of the groundskeeper at the manor house in Goonzoyle, finds himself in steerage aboard the SS City of Benares. Also aboard is the heir to Goonzoyle, Jonathan Hicks. When the ship is torpedoed, the two boys find themselves thrown together, clinging to the wreckage of a life raft. But only one of the boys survives. In 2003, Jessica Mann researches her new book, 'Out Of Harm's Way'; the story of the children evacuated from Britain during WWII. In response to her request for information about survivors of the Benares disaster, she is contacted by Connie, Ted Johns' sister. As Jessica digs deeper, she realizes that the events of that fateful night are haunting the present, and when two sets of human bones are found in the grounds of Goonzoyle, the past and present collide.
