Journey for Margaret is a 1942 drama film set in London in World War II. It stars Robert Young and Laraine Day as a couple who have to deal with the loss of their unborn child due to a bombing raid. It is an adaptation of the novel of the same name by William Lindsay White.
John Davis is a correspondent in England during World War II before the US gets into the war. He and his wife Nora are expecting their first child, but she loses the baby in an air raid and the doctor has to perform a hysterectomy, so she can have no more children. She returns to the US and John gets involved with orphan children Peter and Margaret by chance. The movie highlights the horrors of war as seen through the eyes of the children. John writes a story about Margaret and Peter and eventually takes them to America, where he and Nora adopt them.
