Nathan is boyishly excited about moving in next-door to his political hero, Senator Tom Naughton. Meri is unimpressed, but strikes up an unexpected friendship with his wife.
She becomes increasingly drawn to this private, poised older woman, sensing that she has much to learn from her. But she comes closer, too, to a final, terrible breach of trust that could ruin everything.

"[She] brings unusual skill in the exploration of women's hopes and regrets" (Sunday Telegraph)
A senator who constantly strays and his wife left pretending to the kids that everything is fine; and a young couple just beginning their journey in married life meet. Quite sad.
