When six-year-old orphan Arthur Hobhouse is shipped to Australia after World War Two, he is torn from his sister, his country and everything he has ever known. A long journey lies ahead: a journey of enormous hardships. Taking courage from his friend, fellow orphan Marty, and the extraordinary people he meets along the way, Arthur finally settles down in Australia, discovering a special talent for boat-design and sailing. Now he has built a special boat for his daughter Allie – a solo yacht designed to carry her to England in search of his long-lost sister. Will the tangled threads of Arthur’s life come together at last? Another awe-inspiring cross-generational tale of the type which Michael Morpurgo writes so well.
