The Other Mother

Carol Goodman

Daphne Marist is on the run from her controlling husband with her infant daughter Chloe. Using a fake identity, she takes a live-in job as a writer's secretary. Her new home in the Catskills is located right next to the psychiatric hospital her father used to run. Her struggles are intensified due to postpartum depression. The twists and turns in Daphne's life mount, and she ends up being a patient in the mental ward herself.
