Madge’s husband and daughter share secrets that exclude her. Exempt from the family mystery she is an outcast, ignored, and treated as nothing more than a house item, a part of the furniture, and a houseplant thirsty for water.
Madge Kiley’s daughter is on trial for killing her rapist in self-defense. Madge’s husband is a United States senator. The daughter’s truth will destroy the senator’s career and send the daughter to prison. Her lawyer abandons her trial.
