This novella, set in 1946, explores the needs and wants of Cooley and Edna Godwin, who have been married almost twenty years. The title comes from a popular song of the time about the constancy of love. The story opens and closes with both the husband's and wife's perspectives, but the central body of the work takes on Edna's consciousness as she leaves home, South Norfolk, Virginia, to look for happiness in California. During her travels, she is forced to examine her prejudices, to question her myopic view of the world, and to recognize the nature of true love.
