On this day in April 1952, Frima Erlichman, devoted mother and not-so-devoted housewife, secretly chafes at her confined fish-bowl life in the Bronx with her husband, Jack.

In contrast, her sister-in-law, Beth, openly relishes her Bohemian existence in Greenwich Village with Eduardo, whom sheadores, and savors the privacy and space of her own painters studio.

At the moment, however, both women are happy to be on view to their unknown male admirers in the Manhattan restaurant where theyre having lunch together. They feel like carefree teenagers on a lark.On this same day in Ossining, New York, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, convicted of treason, are in maximum security at Sing, Sing, facing the electric chair. Neither Frima nor Beth dream that this grim reality will have far-reaching consequences for them personally- yet for Frima they begin with a panic attack that same afternoon, and for Beth, with a puzzling and bitter argument with Eduardo that evening.These two women, connected by background, friendship, marriage, and the D train speeding underground from the north Bronx to lower Manhattan, will now also share a struggle for personal growth.

They find themselves butting against a maze of orthodoxies--social, political, right, left, and center--that is the 1950s. In their characteristic styles they must either skirt around these obstacles or barge right through them.
