During the Second World War, after the ship in which they were on while escaping from Singapore was sunk by Japanese bombers, eight survivors reached a desert island. These were Miss Radcliffe, the head-mistress of a posh boarding school, six of her pupils, and a stowaway called Betty Smith. Betty was the only one of them with any idea how to survive away from civilisation. Miss Radcliffe—a stubborn, snobbish woman-took advantage of Betty and treated her as a servant. Several times Betty had the feeling that they were not the only ones on the island, and that they were being watched.
