Harnessing Peacocks

(1985)
A novel by

 
 
A compartmentalized life becomes entangled.

Hebe listens in the darkness of the hall to a family conference. Her stern grandfather and the others are discussing Hebe's unexpected pregnancy. The decision, unanimous, is that it be terminated. Hebe, dissenting, flees into the night.

Twelve summers later she is living happily alone with her son in a seaside town where he is receiving an expensive education. Hebe has organized her life oddly but well. She has two chief talents in life — cooking and making love — and these she has exercised with dignity, in privacy and for profit.

It is when separated strands of the web of Hebe's life becomes entangled that the even tenor of her days is threatened, and her life changes.
