Maureen Ross, well past a safe childbearing age, is experiencing a difficult pregnancy. Her husband, Troop-cold and careless of her condition-is an emotional cripple who has battered her spirit throughout their marriage. As Maureen's time grows near, she becomes convinced she will die in childbirth. Into this loveless mňage arrives Mary Oliver, Troop's niece.

Horrified by Troop's bullying, she soon discovers that her true duty is to protect her aunt.
