Year: 1976. ISBN: 0698107616. Philip and Hannah appear to be an enviable couple-Philip, hardworking and ambitious, on the edge of success as a consulting engineer, Hannah a part-time counselor at a day school-with two children and a house of their own. But as Hannah struggles to keep the balance between her different roles-wife, mother, hostess, professional worker-it becomes increasingly clear that the bits of her life do not fit together. Hannah is instrumental in arranging an abortion for one of her young charges, and as a result, she begins to consider her life from her own, rather than her husband's, perspective.
