Summary
In 1910, Bill, a Chicago steel worker accidentally kills his supervisor. He flees to the Texas panhandle with his girlfriend Abby and little sister Linda, where they work harvesting wheat in the fields of a stoic farmer. When Bill learns that the farmer is ill and has less than a year to live, he encourages Abby to accept the man's attentions. The farmer and Abby marry, and she and her "siblings" live in the big house, waiting for the farmer to die, so Abby can inherit. But love seems to be a cure-all: the farmer seems to be improving. And Abby is no longer seeing this as a marriage of convenience
