    On September 17, 1940, at a little after 10 at night, a German submarine torpedoed the passenger liner SS City of Benares in the North Atlantic. There were 406 people onboard, but the ship's prized passengers were 90 children whose parents had elected to send their boys and girls away from Great Britain to escape the ravages of World War II. Miracles on the Water tells the astonishing story of the survivors - not one of whom had any reasonable hope of rescue as the ship went down.
