From official release/information:
In Blood and Roses, Jayne Taylor spent three years as a noncombatant running relief supplies to hospitals and refugees in the European theater. During that time she killed a man, rescued a novice who later became her friend and the nanny to the four children she adopted after the war. Now it's 1920 and Jayne and her family are returning to the US to make a life for themselves however, she sees the man she killed on the wharf in New York. But perhaps that's just travel weariness. The main problem Jayne has is finding a job to support her family--lady jobs don't pay enough. As a truck driver for the mob running booze she can feed and clothe them but then a woman doing a man's job never has an easy time of it.
