Will Tweedy is coming of age in Cold Sassy, Georgia, and he must contend with his grandfather remarrying before his grandmother is 'cold in her grave', the rivalry between him and his Aunt Loma, the gossiping townfolks, the damper being 'in mourning' puts on summer plans, and his feelings for the 'mill-girl' Lightfoot.
