A Quiet Life in Bedlam

A Quiet Life in Bedlam


The year is 1965. The U.S. is in turmoil as the Vietnam War escalates and civil unrest is seething. Kate Bamber, a 19-year-old telephone operator from Memphis, is longing to find a good husband and some meaning to her young life. Seeking to escape a sad and troubled existence with her abusive parents, Kate eagerly accepts a job transfer and moves out of her parent’s house to the beautiful, sunny beaches of Miami, Florida. Filled with hope and excitement, Kate immediately realizes her Mid-Southern upbringing and small-town naïveté are no match for the harsh realities of life during these rapidly changing times. Romantic notions and hunger for adventure drive Kate to a guilt-ridden yet passionate love affair that unexpectedly leads to a seemingly picture-perfect marriage. But her desire for love and companionship continues to burn and the idea of a quiet married life is not what Kate’s free-spirited nature is made for.
