Dori Grayómarried, then divorced, age forty, professional journalistóhad given up hope of a child.

Then comes the astonishing revelation that she is pregnantóby her married ex-lover.
Doriís options are limited. Fearful that her doctor will decline to oversee an illegitimate birth, or that sheíll be forced into a hermitlike existence until the child is born, Dori confides in her married best friend, Celia Duke. Surprised by Celiaís confidence and support, Dori decides to confront her predicament head-on.
