Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

In the suburbs, a young mother is looking after her two children. She has been a successful career woman in control of her life, sexually aware and used to attracting any man's undivided attention, if she wanted to.

But now her control is slipping away. Motherhood is devouring her identity. Her two children depend on her and her husband adores her new role in the home. He is no longer focused on her. Her children are stealing his affection. Her own desires are secondary to someone else's.

She wants to reclaim her sense of self, her power. Just because she is a mother doesn't mean she will protect those she is supposed to love. For her, everything is conditional. And everyone is in danger.
