As the bombs are falling, Carrie and her little brother are evacuated to Wales and billeted at the home of the bullying Mr Evans and his timid sister Lou. At first very unhappy, they discover great warmth when they visit Albert at Druid's Bottom, where they meet Hepzibah Green, who knows magical stories, and Mister Johnny, who speaks a language all his own. When things go wrong, Carrie takes things into her own hands, without guessing the awful consequences.
