When her brother-in-law William Symonds dies, May Thrace returns to her home town after a 20 year absence to attend his funeral. She is not there, as she makes quite plain, to visit her now widowed sister June. The two have been estranged for a long-time and have not seen or spoke to one another since their mother's funeral 7 years before. Even as children, they bickered constantly and May always felt that June was her parents', especially her father's, favorite. May and William were once engaged but that soon came to an end when William met and eventually married June. May attempted suicide as a result of her broken heart. June would very much like to reconcile with May and asks her to come and live with her. Written by
