Sue Miller once again sharply defines a powerful tale of women, marriage, and the challenges of motherhood and impending age. Meri, newly married, pregnant, and naive, moves into a New England townhouse shared by Delia Naughton, wife of Senator Tom Naughton. This accidental proximity provides a rich fascination for Meri as she explores the complexity of the couple's bond. Meri contrasts Delia's compromises with her own marriage and begins to notice striking parallels. Miller's precision in the use of metaphor, introspection, and emotion is wed by Blair Brown's vocalizations into a most compelling fusion. Brown's expression of the more mature Delia is reminiscent of the imperious intonations of Eleanor Roosevelt, and she also accurately captures the slurred and halting speech of a stroke victim.
