About this title


This story of a young woman's rape and its effect on her family takes place in the world of Manhattan's upper middle class, tracing Elizabeth Mason's recovery, her parent's pain and guilt, and the family's gradual transformation

From the Back Cover:

As he did in Kramer vs. Kramer, Avery Corman has again put his finger on the dramatic subject that cuts to the heart of every American's immediate concern. Here, against the backdrop of Manhattan careers, country houses, and children whose futures are limited only by their parents' checkbooks, Corman introduces Elizabeth Mason, a beautiful, spirited teenager who is raped during her first week of college by the star of the school tennis team. Her gradual recovery, the pain and guilt that threaten her parents' marriage, the dramatic courtroom scenes, and the family's eventual transformation, create a story of a perfect family caught in a crisis right from today's headlines.
