Cheery vicar Applebee-Thornton comes to stay at the convent whilst his house is being prepared. He is taken by the shy nursing assistant Jane and asks her out but she is nervous and stands him up. Later she admits to him her unhappy past and starts to come out of her shell. Jenny and Sister Evangelina deliver Ruby and Douglas Roberts' son but the child has spina bifida and needs special attention. Blaming herself Ruby sinks into a depression and Jenny, to Sister Evangelina's disapproval,takes on childcare duties. However the offer of a place in a home for physically disabled children makes the young couple face up to their responsibility.

Did You Know?
By the time I'd been in Poplar for a year, I'd begun to see myself as rather bold. Coming to examine me? Dank alleys did not frighten me, and neither did their occupants. But did I really take risks? Did I really look beyond the surface, to the darker things beneath? My uniform was my armour. And there was much about the East End that I did not need to know. Much about life I had yet to encounter. It was a safe bet that surprises lay in store.
