This might be termed a Constant Nymph gone askew. Amos Button had six undisciplined daughters, a household that depended on the attention of the eldest, a wife who was a virtual prisoner in her own neuroticism -- and a feeble-minded baby son of dubious legitimacy. Then there is one outsider who counts, a young lawyer in the father's office, who is in love with the eldest daughter. Tragedy, when hot-headed Judy is responsible for the boy's death -- the family stands together, but when it is over, Jo has lost her chance to her younger sister. A morbid, difficult story.
