Winner of the 1923 Pulitzer Prize by the author of The Detour.
When the cold
a rural Maine family dies, she leaves her fortune
and estate to a grim step cousin,
grasping and entitled eldest children. To
compound the injury, the new heiress refuses
them any assistance, and she takes on as a hand
the black sheep of the family: their
ne'er-do-well brother on the run from the law.
She proves a stern task-master; he a resentful
partner, yet they begin to envision a better
future in spite of themselves. But nature will
out in a play that asks whether our habits and
fears will always defy our highest aspirations.
