After 19 years of marriage, three children and a brief but passionate affair followed by a quick divorce, Elizabeth Aidallbery has to go to hospital for an emergency operation. From her hospital bed she has the leisure to take stock of her life, and frankly it doesn't look very edifying: there's the 17 year old daughter who's run off to a commune with her boyfriend; an old hopeless suitor who continues to press his claim; and of course the memory of the havoc she caused by the affair. No doubt she could put her life back in order. But need that involve all those people who cause her so much heartache?
