Luke Trenwith is keen to serve his country, and no less keen to escape his overbearing parents, who refuse to take his aspirations as an artist seriously. War is also a chance for him to leave behind the beguiling Rose Barlow, a maid at the house for whom Luke feels more than he ought...Jack Barlow is leaving his job as a groom at Trenwith Hall for the trenches. His sister Rose is also keen to do her bit and is joining the VADs. Jack is destined to cross paths with Luke Trenwith again, and as tragedy strikes, it seems all their lives will remain entangled, despite having left Trenwith Hall behind.
