A New England schoolteacher's life is chronicled over 25 years as she displays an uncomfortably sharp wit, sometimes at the expense of others. She has a very fixed emotional core and strong ideas about the way things ought to be. These characteristics have gotten her into trouble on more than one occasion. Her relationships are at the center of this piece, with her husband Henry's kind spirit sometimes in direct opposition to hers, along with her son Christopher's resentment of the way he was raised.
