General Notes

Description

A young woman (Rose) and man (Rodney) fall in love on sight, and marry soon thereafter. Since he is wealthy and a very successful lawyer, they live in high society. Rose comes to realize she is more a mistress than an equal partner with her husband in their life. She realizes that until she can be on an equal footing with him -- to be his friend, as well as his lover -- they will grow apart and live an empty life like so many of their fancy friends. She radically separates from him, in order to create a persona for herself that will be an equal match to his brilliance.
