After losing everything in the Blitz, Hilda Stone and her 14-year-old daughter Ellen are desperate for a miracle. But their world is shattered when a telegram informs them that Doug - their beloved husband and father - has been lost at sea. In the depths of despair, Hilda is one day approached by a strange woman with a message - and both she and Ellen are astounded when the prediction becomes a reality. Years later, the teenaged Ellen makes a shocking mistake - but is rescued by the man who later becomes her husband, and the family finally find peace.
