Jill Winternitz captures the strain of maintaining facades in her portrayals of four neighboring women who are forced to confront unearthed truths. From the first crack in the veneer at a neighborhood barbecue to a tragic incident befalling one of their children, each woman's world starts to unravel and affect the others in the group. Listeners will feel the panic as the "perfect" wife and mother, Whitney, has her faults revealed. They will feel Rebecca's desperation for a child after a series of miscarriages and Mara's quiet, all-knowing observations about the other women's lives. They will feel Blair's determination to uncover secrets that may destroy her family. Motherhood and passion pull these women together but may also tear them apart.
