Archie Logan, a country doctor, and his wife Liza lead an orthodox-seeming life, and everything is well until Archie's father, a widower for over 30 years, falls in love. His choice, a woman of powerful charm, has a profound effect on all the Logans, adults and children alike. The house and family turn from being a refuge to being a cage. Archie and Liza risk losing everything they have built. A Passionate Man is about a man's mid-life crisis and a woman's fear of failure. It is about fathers and sons, about sex and love, about loyalties and identities. It is also a story about modern village life.
