In 1957 newly-qualified but naive midwife Jenny Lee comes to work in London's East end to work with an order of nursing nuns when she had been expecting a hospital as a base. Whilst pleased to have helped no nonsense Sister Evangelina deliver her first baby she is shocked by the poverty of her clients,terming the women 'heroines'. She is especially concerned for Conchita Warren,a Spanish former child bride,who speaks no English and is about to give birth for the twenty-fourth time. When Conchita falls down,inducing early labour, Jenny is thrown in at the deep end to deliver the baby on her own but wins praise from the doctors for her successful work.

I must have been mad. I could have been an air hostess. I could have been a model. I could have moved to Paris or been a concert pianist. I could have seen the world, been brave, followed my heart. But I didn't. I side-stepped love and set off for the East End of London, because I thought it would be easier. Madness was the only explanation.
