Summary

Summary

We meet Ginny and Tom in North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains at the turn of the 20th century. Theirs is a practical marriage: Tom wants land to call his own, and Ginny knows she can't managed her aging father's farm by herself. Though their attraction is sometimes deeply gratifying, their obsessions get in the way of happiness. Tom's a workaholic who hoards time and money. Ginny is drawn to the ecstasies of Pentacostal worship -- a blessing to her and a disgrace to Tom. It isn't until Tom becomes desperately ill that the couple discovers their truest pleasure.
