It's 1929 and thirteen-year-old Tom Campbell has always wanted a true family inside a genuine house and a dog of his very own. Now he's being sent far away to live and function with fisherman Enoch Murray and his wife, Fiona, on Back o' the Moon Island. Since he was 3 years old, the only home Tom has known will probably be the Mission orphanage on the Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland.

So, Tom is amazed when, on his first time in the fishing boat and within the middle of a squall, he rescues a Newfoundland dog who seems to have come out of nowhere. Tom names the dog Thunder. When an earthquake strikes the area, Thunder proves himself invaluable to the loved ones and the island, saving lives and warning of imminent danger -- and it seems that Tom and Thunder might both have a place making use of the Murray household. With nobody to claim him, the dog fast becomes Tom's loyal and constant companion.

But then Fiona becomes pregnant with her first child, and it looks like Thunder's owner might be found. Will the Murrays still want Tom? And will Tom be forced to give up his beloved Thunder? Tom's wonderful, new globe is getting turned upside down.
