One man on a journey across the ocean meets seven remarkable children—children on the run from their parents, children who will change his life.
Martin Boyne is not a reckless man. A bachelor despite being over forty, he is taking a transatlantic journey to meet with a widow whom he has nursed a cautious love for for years. He is disappointed that he never meets interesting people on his trips—disappointed, that is, until he makes the remarkable acquaintance of the seven Wheater children, travelling only with their nanny, to escape their parents. As if this were not remarkable enough, he discovers that he knows the parents, and the astonishing nature of the encounter is enough to overcome his caution, and he agrees to help them flee, despite the risks.
