Patsy's plans to study for a career in palaeontology are thwarted as the outbreak of WW2 maroons her in Palestine, the land of her childhood. When Rommel's army is poised to invade Palestine, she joins a British-organized network of Palestinian Jews set up to defy the Germans should they succeed in invading the country she loves.

In the course of her duties, she meets up with Tim her old puppy love boyfriend but fights against falling in love with him again since marriage would interfere with her post-war plans. When, however, Tim is reported missing, presumed dead, in the Western Desert, she realizes how much he means to her and in the hope of finding him connives to join an SOE (Special Operations Executive) project, the start of a journey that takes her to Italy and eventually back to Palestine.
