It's war-time and a challenging year lies ahead for Helen. Her brother Harry is fighting in Egypt and her sister treats her with unreasonable contempt. When Helen discovers all is not as she has been led to believe it's like, 'that song on the radio where a family is so mixed up someone was his own grampa.'

Novel for children.
