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.

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.
