Mariette Carrera is a defiant and strong-willed seventeen-year-old. Her doting parents, Belle and Etienne, fear for her reputation in their small, gossipy New Zealand hometown. So, with the world on the brink of war, Mari leaves home on the SS Rimutaka, bound for London. Armed with the freedom she's longs for since childhood, Mari quickly falls for Morgan, the handsome cockney steward on board ship. But once she reaches London, there are other temptations. As London endures the blitz, Mari's new life is blown apart. Forced from her loving new home, she ends up alone in the East End, worlds away from the glamorous London she knows. But there, amidst the destruction and despair, she finds the chance to make a difference. The only way that Mari can survive this war is to fight, with all the strength, selflessness and compassion with her and only then will she find true happiness.
