Arriving back in her hometown after spending some time training at the Infirmary for Women in New York, Maud can't wait to put her newfound skills to the test. But in a city built and run by men she must work hard to be accepted.
Whilst her nurse friends welcome her back with open arms, there are others who do not wish her well, including the spiteful Nancy Sellers.
Nancy resented Maud's talents as a nurse, and seeing her arrive back with such fanfare puts her nose firmly out of joint. She will stop at nothing to sabotage Maud's life and soon turns her attention to those Maud holds most dear.
But Maud Linklater is made of strong stuff, and together with her friends, Alice and Eddie, can she overcome any obstacle Nancy, and Liverpool, might throw her way?
