Nicky's a survivor. She's lived through a difficult Greek childhood then years spent teaching in a small-minded country town after the failure of the utopian community where everyone, including her artist husband, walked away. Her greatest challenge now is Imogen, whom Nicky has raised as a daughter since her parents abandoned her as a baby. Now Imogen is fifteen and cutting loose, and Nicky wants to give her better opportunities for the future. Furies is an incisive exploration of contemporary family relationships.
