A Novel


A complex masterpiece that reveals the mind of a contemporary woman beyond the confines of family, love, and duty to one’s self

Lexie, a married woman with four children, undergoes a midlife crisis and questions her role as wife, mother, and lover.

Through rich symbolism, lively dialogue, and acute commentary, Hortense Calisher conjures a cohesive map of Lexie’s personal awakening.
