A lot has changed in the world since Sophie, Molly, Mark, Harriet, Leticia and Posy's last adventure in The Silver Lining. Now it's 1940, and the Second World War is making life back home in the United Kingdom very dangerous indeed. Although our intrepid crew has seen their fair share of precarious situations, from being chased by pirates to making harrowing rescues in abandoned mine shafts, their parents decide to once again send them across the ocean and into the care of the eccentric Captain Gunn. Instead of sitting out the war in a safe, quiet place, captain and crew embark on their biggest adventure yet!
