** spoiler alert ** Muriel, Oliver, Emma and Frank all have their own worries about the war. Frank wants to enlist more than anything, and once he does, Oliver feels that he can't stay home and do nothing. but does he really want to leave his family and Emma?

And Muriel? She's not sure where she fits in. Does she want to get married and settle down? She's not sure that kind of life is for her. When her aunt is arrested for picketing the White House in the name of women's rights, Muriel has a chance to see the nation's capitol and meet the suffragettes. She finally feels at home.

But then things change rapidly when Emma's family receives a notice that her brother Frank was killed in the war. Soon after, Oliver returns home missing an arm. Was it worth it?
