Janice Maddever wants to work with horses. Her first job is with the rich, unhappy Jervis family. Each of the Jervis children needs help, and Jan is the one who provides it. Irving has been crippled by polio, and thinks he will never ride again. Elaine wants to be a nurse, but dare not tell her snobbish mother this. Gary, a playwright, is the favourite, but he’s having problems writing and isn’t too fussy about where he gets his ideas. The last child, Sarah, is pretty but selfish. In the end Jan impresses more than just the Jervis family, and rides at White City.
