For Frances and her family, living on a remote lighthouse station, World War Two is both far away and scarily close. There are rumours of submarines in the Pacific. The Japanese have attacked Pearl Harbor, taken Singapore and bombed what's to stop them invading New Zealand next? But then trouble strikes closer to home - and Frances, the only girl on the island, has more to worry about than the threat of Japanese invasion. Suddenly, everyday life is harder than ever before. And it's up to Frances to hold the family together.
