Man #1


Villagers Paul and Davie Nance would be perfectly happy, except for four consecutive miscarriages. She transfers her nursing side to Baptist parish volunteer work. Thus she cares for grumpy, sickly, infidel old neighbor, Olin Arrendal, better than the registered nurse. Grateful, he makes her meet his cheeky, stray-Methodist grandson Clay, who moved in to get to know his grandfather. Davie soon finds Clay's knavish charm irresistible, he's amused she 'stalks' him. Then things turn. Written by KGF Vissers
