Old Settler: A woman who is pushing 40 who’s never been married and has no prospects…
Sparks fly in a 1943 Harlem tenement between 55-year-old spinster, Redwood Elizabeth Borny, and her skeptical sister, Quilly McGrath when Husband Witherspoon, a handsome young Great Migrator arrives on their doorstep. Husband’s quest to find his long-lost love, Lou Bessie, is thwarted when he finds an unexpected new romance with an Old Settler. Full of humor and grit, this story of American love and survival reverberates with timelessness and warmth.
