Storyline

Hesitant nursing assistant Jane Sutton arrives at the convent as Jenny is seconded to hospital work, meeting Jimmy, who, to her surprise, is one of the patients. Arrogant surgeon Aubrey Tracy misdiagnoses Jimmy and an operation is required, where Jenny acquits herself well. She also sees that Tracy is himself ill and he resigns. Meanwhile aggressive twins Meg and Maeve Carter - both married to the hen-pecked Sid - arrive at the clinic as Maeve is pregnant. However they eschew modern medicine for old herbal remedies and, following a bleak tarot card reading, the over-bearing Meg scares her sister into refusing hospital admission. Ultimately Maeve senses that she needs professional care and allows the midwives in for a home birth - where a new generation of twins is born. Written by don @ minifie-1
