The great hurricane of 1953 swept away the dikes of Holland, drowned thousands of farmers, and left others homeless, but it also brought in a tidal wave of human kindness from all over the world. Among the flood survivors were ten-year-old Jan Brink, a war orphan, and the half-caste little Indonesian girl, Adinda, both of them foster children of Parson Grijpma. Stranded first in the houseboat and then in a hospital ship, the waifs learned that disaster makes all men brothers, and that adults treat children more kindly than usual.
