Summary, etc.:
Even after two decades of volatile marriage, Katharine Merrill still believes she can have the life that she felt promised to her by those first exhilarating months of her marriage to Frederick, before he left to fight in World War II. But as Frederick's behavior and moods have darkened over the years, Katharine has been left to rein in his great manic passions and bridge his deep wells of sadness: an unending project of wavering hope. When Frederick's erratic behavior--increasingly amplified by alcohol--leads to a cocktail party that ends with him in handcuffs, Katharine makes a fateful decision: she commits Frederick to Mayflower Home, America's most revered mental asylum.
