"The Carpenter's Children" follows the lives, loves and adventures of Tom Munday's three children. In 1914, Tom's son, Ernest, a serious-minded and sensitive young man, struggles to subdue his pacifist beliefs when called upon to sign up in the army. He leaves his family home in order to fight. Whilst Tom's two daughters are relatively safe from the ongoing conflict, he nevertheless worries about them. Isobel is a pretty eighteen-year-old who marries her sweetheart and moves with him to his poor east London parish, but life is not kind to the couple. The youngest of the three children, fifteen-year-old Grace, is the naughty one, wilful and headstrong. When she finds herself pregnant she is forced to grow up and allows her child to be adopted by her elder sister. But the reappearance of an old acquaintance brings the promise of new hope and happiness to her life.
