New York City
The waning days of summer should give way to the promise of autumn and a fresh start. But it’s 1953 in a small Kansas town and options are few for the stunningly beautiful Madge and her independent younger sister, Millie, who yearn for more than the life of staid domesticity awaiting them. Then a dangerously handsome drifter comes along and sets the whole town a-flutter. In this Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, Inge depicts the pleasure–and the pain–of risking everything to choose your own path.
