Elinor Mackey steadfastly followed the drill she had been taught. She got good grades; didn't miss a beat in college or law school; landed a lucrative corporate career; and got married.

That tragedy is compounded when hubby Ted drifts into an affair with a local nutritionist, setting off a whole new series of unplanned explosions. Lolly Winston's novel captures a family train wreck in stop-action.
