Summary (From the publisher):

How do the people we once were persist inside the men and women we become? How do we reconcile our oldest dreams with the demands of our present lives? And what if our reasoned pursuit of happiness ends up betraying needs that are deeper and more sacred? Willa Cather addressed these questions with empathy and startling insight in The Professor's House.

Cather's protagonist is Professor Godfrey St. Peter, a man in his fifties who has devoted his life to his work, his wife, his garden, and his daughters and achieved success with all of them. But when St. Peter is called on to move to a new, more comfortable house, something in him rebels. And although at first that rebellion consists of nothing more than mild resistance to his family's wishes, it imperceptibly comes to encompass the entire order of his life.
