|Plot Summary of The Pilgrim Song|
|"Lewis Winslow has heavily invested in the stock market, but the crash of '29 leaves him a pauper. His daughter, Hannah Winslow, by all accounts a reclusive young woman, finds a deed to some property her mother's family owns. With the help of Clinton Longstreet, the Winslows make their way from NYC down to rural Ga. Can they learn to adjust to country life?
Kat Winslow, at 13, adjusts best to these new life conditions. However, her sisters, Jenny and Hannah, and her brother Josh, don't seem to be taking the changes with anything resembling good grace. Josh, a raging drunk before the crash, becomes a bootlegger to feed his alcoholic appetite.
Clinton Longstreet has never had much of a family. Now, he helps put the pieces of this broken famliy together."
Julie Gilbert, Resident Scholar
