Dellarobia Turnbow is a restless farm wife who gave up her own plans when she accidentally became pregnant at 17. Now, after a decade of disharmony, she seeks momentary escape through a secret tryst with a younger man. As she hikes up to a mountain, she encounters a shocking sight: a silent, forested valley filled with what looks like a lake of fire.
Perfect. Pretty. Political. For nearly 40 years, the Hellinger sisters have played the roles set down by their loving & domineering mother Carol. Perri, a mother of 3, rules her palace with a velvet fist. Pia, a gorgeous and fashionable Chelsea art gallery worker, still turns heads after becoming a single mother. And Gus, a fiercely independent lawyer and an activist. But the Hellinger women aren't pulling off their roles the way they once did. An event leaves them to wonder, . . . who am I?
