From autumn 1941 to the first months of 1942, the war continued to affect the lives of the Adams and Somers families.
It was not so much the war, however, as a succession of tragic domestic events that brought a sad and lonely little girl called Phoebe into the care of Susie and Sammy Adams, reminding them of the entry of Rosie as a child into the lives of Boots and Emily. Much needed to be done to cure little Phoebe of her sadness, and it proved a difficult time for Susie and Sammy.
Further shadows fell when news came that Tim was a prisoner of war, and that Japan had attacked the American fleet in Pearl Harbour and British bases in the Far East.
But Boots's French-born daughter Eloise had her dearest wish come true when she married Colonel Lucas of the Commandos in Alexandria.

More about the Adams family in wartime.From the Back Cover:
In the autumn of 1941 Sammy Adams found a sad and lonely little girl called Phoebe wandering the bomb-scarred streets of London. A series of tragic domestic events had left the child deserted and bewildered, and Sammy and his wife Susie took her into their home and into their hearts. It reminded the family of how Boots and Emily had taken care of young Rosie all those years ago, but for Sammy and Susie there were many difficulties to be overcome to secure Phoebe's future.
But still the Adams clan managed to find joy amongst the worries and hardships of the war. Boots and Polly achieved their hearts' desire, while Boots's French-born daughter Eloise married her swashbuckling Colonel in Alexandria as Japan attacked the American fleet in Pearl Harbor and Tim was wounded and taken prisoner of war. Despite the war escalating and German bombers still raiding London, the old wartime Cockney spirit remained well to the fore.
