Jenny visits pregnant Molly Brignall who is submissive to her abusive husband Ritchie even though he has driven a wedge between her and her mother Marjorie. Molly gives birth in hospital but discharges herself early at her husband's behest. The consequences are disastrous though at least it lets Marjorie into her grandchildren's lives. Sister Evangelina and Trixie have to scale a precarious rope ladder on a Swedish ship,whose captain's daughter Kirsten is about to give birth. The nun dislocates her shoulder so that Trixie - successfully - carries out the birth. She is,however,horrified to learn that Kirsten has been used as a prostitute to keep the crew happy and she gives the young woman the strength to leave the ship and lead her own life. Chummy meanwhile considers mission work in Africa. Written by don @ minifie-1
