Rhodesia watched them from the rumpled bed as they dressed, her slitted eyes golden and knowing. When Elizabeth bent to stroke the cat's belly, the beast stretched and yawned extravagantly.

Brian smiled. "I think she likes you," he said. "She trusts you already."

To that, Elizabeth had no answer.

Indiana University, 1968. Temporarily separated from her liberal-minded fiance, Elizabeth Nye begins an affair, only to find herself caught in a tangle of love, lies, and belated remorse.

Social change, sibling rivalry, and infidelity take center stage as the novel explores multiple varieties and two generations of deception and self-deception.

"A brilliant first novel, thoroughly evolved and gorgeously executed." - Alan Rodgers, author

"Gripping and powerful." - Community News, Denver

This is a revised version of the book published in 2000.
