The island (Sri Lanka, Ceylon) was green and lovely, and the people seemed friendly. But Nancy's chums knew certain secrets that they weren't about to share with her -- at least until the right time. That, and the fact that crocodiles lay around looking like logs, and rogue elephants tended to lose their tempers, made Nancy a little uncomfortable at times.
An entire orphanage full of babies to love provided interest, and so did Sunnyside School and a lot of other things. Actually, Nancy was amazed at how much fun and happiness and pain and tears and learning one can have on a small, green, lovely island.
The author wrote this book to show that being a missionary child has its own kind of excitement.
