Polly chronicles the adventures of an orphan sent to Harrington, Alabama, to live with her aunt -- a very wealthy and influential black woman in a small divided town. Aunt Polly is prim, proper and often cold toward her new charge. Despite many setbacks, Polly's "gladness" game just might thaw the townsfolk and her aunt.
