For almost six years the Merriwethers of Cambridge, Massachusetts, have been living a lie. Sarah and Robert still share the old house on Acorn Street, wooden, gabled, bellied with bay windows. Nights they can be found gathered in the parlor, reading in their favorite roosts. One summer changes the direction of their lives. Sarah has taken the children to Maine, but for the first time in years Robert stays behind to work. A doctor and physiologist, it has been two years since he's done work that has absorbed him. A strange, released summer. He eats alone, plays tennis occasionally or rows on the Charles River, reads books that he hasn't looked at since his youth and walks the "Jammed, astonishing summer streets." His energy turns inward and Merriweather the "Longtime skeptic living in a sea of skepticism" finds Cynthia Ryder, a young summer student who renews his passion and helps him to redefine his life. Other Men's Daughters explores the theme that men are most alike in their most passionate times, but that most men diffuse the passions that first sustained them.
