Synopsis

In the late 1920s, columnist Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings moves to Cross Creek, Fla., to dedicate herself to writing a serious novel. Despite her husband's eventual departure, the initial suspicion of the locals about her work, and the challenge of finding a worthy subject to devote herself to, Marjorie persists in her dream. With the inspiration of kindly Marsh Turner and his daughter, Ellie, Marjorie discovers the perfect theme for her novel.
