Her protagonist, European-born widower Ben Shein, is middle-aged, a successful furrier in Paterson, New Jersey, in the early 1940s when the novel opens. Lonely and ghost-haunted by his dead wife Tess, Ben pursues and marries the young and beautiful shopgirl Judith Karger against the advice of his brother Nat, who struggles to leave the family’s fur business. Their marriage soon disintegrates and Ben’s ten-year-old daughter Susan, his only child, becomes an innocent victim of the bitter unhappiness between her father and stepmother.
