WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Desperate to free herself from her marriage and the clutches of the Mannon family curse, Christine has taken a lover and murders her husband. Deeply wounded by her mother's betrayal, young Lavinia crusades to reveal the truth and reclaim the family honor. She discovers her strength in revenge, beauty and fear, striving for her unlikely place at the head of the family. This streamlined revision of Eugene O'Neill's epic, set at the end of the Civil War, hurtles us through the Mannons' cycle of murder, vengeance, and reinvention.
