Juvenile hardback Twin orphans, brother and sister, cast adrift, sail with a shipment of humanitarian aid to Greece during the Greek War of Independence from the Ottoman Turks. Endless adventures ensue, the brother trying to care for his sister, and the sister always thinking up a new exciting plan (unlike the self-consciously "spunky" heroines of the 80's, Phoebe is the real thing) Though they begin with the idea of grand adventure, their gradual understanding of the complexity of the situation and the suffering of the refugees, as well as the limits of their ability to care for themselves are handled truthfully, always from a child's point of view.
