Summary Daisy Kenyon is a lovelorn commercial artist caught in a romantic triangle with two men-- one she loves but cannot have and one whose love she cannot return. While in an emotionally draining love affair with married attorney Dan O'Mara, who refuses to leave his wife, she meets returning Army sergeant Peter Lapham-- a decent and gentle man who instantly falls in love with her. Although she carries a torch for Dan, she knows Peter will give her the secure life she desires and agrees to marry him. But when Dan divorces his wife, Daisy is suddenly torn between her obligations and her passions.
