Catherine, the main character in the story, is torn between her desire to fulfil her personal potential and her obligation to care for, and perhaps refrain from surpassing, her once brilliant father, Robert.
When her father succumbs to mental illness, she finds it necessary to abandon her ambitions in the mathematical field and dedicate herself to his care, all the while dealing with the perpetual fear that she will inevitably succumb to the same psychological illness that plagued her father in his final years.
