Summary
A multi-layered story of the death of a woman's sister and husband in the 1940s, with a novel-within-a-novel as a background. Iris Chase Griffen, married at eighteen to a wealthy industrialist but now poor and eighty-two, recalls her far from exemplary life, and the events leading up to her sisters death, who drove a car off a bridge ten days after the war ended, gradually revealing the carefully guarded Chase family secrets
