Synopsis

Close friends Liz and Merry met as freshmen at Smith College in the 1950s. After college, Liz became a successful and respected novelist and Merry got married and had a family. In spite of her happiness as a wife and mother, Merry had aways envied Liz's exciting career, so she writes a book herself. With Liz's help, Merry gets a publisher for her trashy novel, which does not get many good reviews, but becomes a huge best-seller, suddenly making Merry richer and more famous than Liz. This causes a jealous rift between the old friends and marriage problems for Merry.
