Once a Civil Rights activist, Miriam Vener feels traped in the upper-middle-class life she leads with her family in Houston. That life suddenly shatters with the appearance, after almost eighteen years, of Veronica (Ronnee), Miriam's biracial daughter, born of her passionate affair with a brilliant black professor at at Mississippi college. When Miriam introudces her daughter to the utterly white New England town where she summers, and to the Houston society that represents her own compromise of her '60s ideals, the results are complicated. What claim does Miriam have on Ronnee after all this time, and what does Ronnee, no longer a child, want of her mother now?
