Summary As her father Sigmund's sounding board and chief collaborator, Anna Freud harbored secrets that could have shaken the foundation of his growing legacy. This is an insightful fictional glimpse into the Freud family dynamic and, most notably, its impact on Sigmund's theories about lesbianism. How did he receive the announcement that his daughter loved women? How did he deal with her long domestic partnership with another woman?
