Will Binnie's courage hold the family together?
When Mr and Mrs Bone go down with the Titanic, their six children are left on their own. Binnie, the eldest at 17, stands her ground against well-meaning relatives and says she will bring up the family. And for the next four years she runs the Edwardian household, looking after her brothers and sisters, and starting a gentle romance with the vicar.
Then the First World War breaks out and Binnie's two elder brothers and her sweetheart all volunteer – but not all of them come home.
