Quandary Resolution 4818
ensconce, mama bear, hiatus, melliferous
If the opera singer was extraordinary -- her voice comprised such honeyed tones that her larynx was called melliferous, in the press -- then her manager, her mother, was positively sui generis:  this fierce mama bear would enforce a strict six month hiatus after her daughter's performance of a role onstage, ensconcing -- really, imprisoning -- the young diva in a remote mountain villa where she was cut off from the blandishments of importunate impresarios and an adoring public.
