All her life Grace Alcott has followed the proper path, a legacy of her impeccable New England upbringing. She put aside her own needs and became the perfect wife of Bainbridge Alcott, the scion of a prominent North Shore family. In their beautiful Cape Cod home, Grace has led a life of quiet domesticity, and for forty years has been a paragon of wifely virtue in the blue-blooded circles in which the Alcotts effortlessly travel. Yet beneath her gracious facade run deep, unrequited sorrows: the tragic death of her firstborn daughter; the emotional distance of her two sons; and the loss of her own identity in deference to her strong-willed husband. And now, the most shattering blow of all . . . one that will force her to make choices that, for the first time, will take her beyond being Mrs. Alcott to being a woman who can both hold her family together and assert her own independence.
