Summary
As three women head off on a boating trip with a group of children, they receive a letter written by a woman claimimg to have stolen one of their husbands. Which one? The letter doesn't say. Faced with the prospect of a shattered life, each woman soul searches throughout the day. Deborah Bishop feels inadequate amidst her husband's country club set. Everyone sees Lora Mae Hollingsway as a gold digger, including her husband. Rita Phipps has a career that makes her husband feel neglected to the point of infedelity. All three endure the anguish of uncertainty until the boat trip ends, and the truth is revealed. Based on John Klempner's novel
