Eve Armstrong and her little brother are headed for Devon, where the Armstrong parents will do their bit in nearby Plymouth. Pulling out of London Eve takes a last look at the crowded platform, the shabbily dressed evacuees, and a rude little boy sticking his tongue out. She's looking forward to a change of scene. And at first, surrounded by countryside, animals and new pals, Eve is happier than ever at Drake's Farm. Not even her daily chores dampen her spirits. It's a different world that invites fresh starts, and so when Eve runs into the boy from the station, Johnny Durrell, they call a truce and soon become firm friends. At first the war seems a distant reality, but when new evacuee Connie Hale arrives from Liverpool every day becomes a battle. Connie is lazy, stuck up and spiteful - and Johnny's new best friend. As the conflict grows and Eve with it, will she fight for Johnny or concede defeat?
