It is not long before Sybil hears the call to arms and rises to the challenge of war. She is not content to be a lady-like do-gooder. She wants a real job, with real work, and she finds one in nursing. But the work proves more of a test than she expected, shaking all her values and beliefs and finally leading her to question her role as an aristocrat’s daughter. In the end, she will start to make choices that would have seemed impossible, even to hear, before the universal conflict had thrown their whole world into turmoil.
