Abstract:

After 16 years of childless marriage, Vera, a successful lawyer, is astonished when her husband announces that he wants out. Though she was never ecstatically happy with him, that didn't seem to matter. After all, M̀̀arriage was forever. They were Catholics.'' Even more shocking is the news that the object of Edward's affections is none other than her childhood friend and rival who had become a nun. McInerny's story of a capable, intelligent professional woman who is too complacent in her domestic life is played against a scene of changing Catholic mores.
