Here she encounters prejudice and suspicion. But she is determined to make the best of life, for herself and the children in her care.
All the while her fiance and submariner, Sammy, is facing danger out at sea.
Then the Blitz hits London and Phyllis, trying to persuade her mother to return to Dorset with her, gets caught up in it herself.
Shaken but alive, she returns to the relative peace of the countryside.
But soon she is nursing a secret she can tell no one.
Until the news that Sammy's submarine has been sunk reaches her, and she is forced to make a decision she hopes she will never regret...
