The Orphan GameLarge Print - 1999
As the war in Vietnam escalates and as brush fires blacken the California foothills, the Harris family shatters and its members are driven to find new ways to live with one another. Maggie is the young woman struggling to define herself; Marian, the mother who must relinquish her; and Mrs. Rumsen is the childless great-aunt who cares for Maggie when her mother can't. As each woman tells her tale, it becomes clear that each has, in her own way, played the orphan game -- taken the risk to leave home, to claim her life, and, above all, to be loved.
