Annotation:
Isabel Moore, a 30-year-old woman who has spent all her adult life caring for a bedridden father, tries to make a new life after his death. However, the guilt engendered by her strict Catholic upbringing undermines her efforts until, in the end, she finally finds the strength to throw off her loveless background and act on her own behalf.

Mary Gordon
Mary Gordon, an only child, was raised a devout Catholic. Her B.A. is from Barnard, and she has an M.A. in writing from Syracuse University (1973).
