Annette Broadacre and her family are on a journey south for the winter. When they reach Jonesborough, the women of the family elect to stay behind, while the men continue on to Roan Mountain. But what can Jonesborough possibly have to offer a young woman who’s accustomed to much larger cities? Will the town win her over and change her perceptions?
