When the Baird family--Harry, Cynthia, and 10-year old daughter Abigail--late of Connecticut relocate to sleepy Pinehill, South Carolina in 1939, they are seeking a fresh start at the tail end of the Depression and the eve of World War II. They hope to leave behind a slightly unsatisfactory life. Their marriage was entering a luke warm phase, their associations back home did quite not offer a society wherein they shone, and that $300+ Lord & Taylor bill was bound to create embarassment. Harry and Cynthia wished to cultivate a new circle of friends who would be duly impressed with their east coast sophistication, and they hoped the small town economies would improve their financial picture.
