While collecting driftwood on their local beach in Dorset, Ben and Sidney find a message in a bottle washed up on the shore. The message is written in rhyme - is it just a poem? Through a series of thrilling adventures, the boys, along with Sidney's sister, Vera, discover that there is much more to the message than meets the eye...
This delightful story captures a little of what life was like for families living through the Great War, and how faith in God can make a difference, whatever the circumstances.
