In the small town of Castle Rock, the setting of many of King’s stories, Scott Carey is engaged in an escalating battle with the lesbians next door.

When Scott finally understands the prejudices they face – including his own – he tries to help. Unlikely alliances, the annual foot race, and the mystery of Scott’s affliction bring out the best in people who have indulged the worst in themselves and others.
