MY HOME IS ON THE MOUNTAIN

You can make your life extraordinary, if you have the courage.

Eastern Tennessee, 1931

Cecilia Howison, the rich and well-known daughter of a prominent east Tennessee family, appears to be the perfect Southern girl: cultured, gracious, virginal. The actual lesbian she is feels restless and ready for something new. She finds it in a high mountain meadow.

Airey Fitch is the mainstay of her family's hard-scrabble hill farm. She has no love for the Howisons or any their kind, who now are evicting the mountain folk to create a new national park. Despite them, she will hang on, despite them, she will seek a life for herself in music.

Cecilia and Airey find themselves driven to emotional connections that only Cecilia knows are dangerous, but just as they realise they are bound by more than friendship, more than passion, they are confronted by an agonising, implacable choice.
