Abstract:

Elisabeth, an accomplished journalist and new mother, is struggling to adjust to life in a small town after twenty years in New York City. Alone in the new house with their infant son all day and night, she feels uneasy, adrift. She neglects her work, losing untold hours to her Brooklyn moms' Facebook group, her 'influencer' sister's Instagram feed, and text chains with the best friend she never sees anymore. Enter Sam, a senior at the local women's college, who is hired by Elisabeth to babysit. Sam is struggling to decide between the path she's always planned on and romantic entanglement. Sam and Elisabeth grow close. Sam becomes Elisabeth's confidante, a repository for all the secrets Elisabeth is too ashamed to tell. Elisabeth, in turn, offers guidance, allaying Sam's fears. But when Sam finds an unlikely kindred spirit in Elisabeth's father-in-law, the true differences between the women's lives become starkly revealed and lead to a betrayal that has devastating consequences.
