(From the publisher):
Anxiously embarking on her first teaching job, Lucy Winter arrives at a New England women's college and shortly finds herself in the thick of a crisis: she has discovered a dishonest act committed by a brilliant student who is the protegee of a powerful faculty member. How the central characters --- students and teachers --- react to the crisis and what effect the scandal has on their personal and professional lives are the central motifs of May Sarton's sensitive, probing novel.
