Gertrude Klingenfelter, the main character, has returned to her hometown of Pitch Pine, Pennsylvania after an extended stay in Europe. She purchases a home site unseen before arriving back to Pitch Pine. This house is uninhabitable which was a surprise to Gertrude. This does not mean the house serves no purpose.

Small town. Meeting new and old acquaintances. Life gets complicated. Gertrude has her own personal baggage to deal with. This real estate purchase turns into a nightmare on top of that.
