Her divorce becomes the agent of profound change. She is an intelligent, overly driven, and empathic doctor, as shown through multiple vibrant dialogues with numerous patients in her office. At age thirty-three she marries Cal, a pharmacist, and the reader witnesses their intense and deeply troubling relationship, filled with competition, unmet expectations, and ultimately verbal abuse and alcoholism. Although Jennas intentions are good, she has such blind spots resulting from her defense mechanisms and her early experiences that she cannot apply her professional skills to herself.

The reader thus becomes even more astute than Jenna, and identifies with her in her painful struggle to find strength and self-confidence. Authorbio: Dr. Mavis Donnelly is a psychiatrist in Tucson, Arizona, with a large private practice and solid reputation as a psychiatric expert witness. Dr. Donnelly lives with her twelve beloved canine companions and surrounds herself with nature in seeking joyous serenity.
