Summary (From the publisher):

This is the story of Polly, a happy wife and mother from a remarkably strong and attractive family, who one day finds herself embarked on a completely unexpected, sweet and painful love affair with a painter named Lincoln Bennett. All of Polly's beliefs about herself and the rightness of her life are exploded, uprooting what had seemed to be a settled and everlasting idea of family happiness.
