The small town of Fentonville is a typical small town with its social elitists and country club crowd who steer the content of the social register. Athaleigh Fenton the bank presidents wife and Lucy Burke the mayors wife are high in the pecking order. Nancy Fenton, Athaleighs daughter is in love with a little country boy, Ben Locke, who lives two farms down the road from her grandmother. Ben is not acceptable to Athaleigh, so she forces Nancy to date Joe Burkes, Lucys son. Follow the trail of trials and heartache as Nancy struggles with problems at home and Ben is a Marine in Korea in the heat of the Korean conflict. Nancy winds up living under the protection of her grandmother, Granny Fenton. Granny is a pioneer woman and she is the granddaughter of the founder of Fentons trading post, which later became Fentonville. Granny Fenton, somewhat eccentric, still lives a pioneer lifestyle, living off the land, raising her garden, milking her cow, and preserving her food. She and her son, Reginald, the bank president, are somewhat estranged because of Grannys frequent outbursts in Fentonville. What most in the town do not realize is that Granny is very intelligent and wealthy. Her son actually works for her.
