“Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes.”
Picture a charming home in the South. Into this peaceful scene put the prosperous, despotic Hubbard family—Ben, possessive and scheming; Oscar, cruel and arrogant; Ben’s dupe, Leo, weak and unprincipled; Regina wickedly clever—each trying to outwit the other. In contrast, meet lonely intimidated Birdie, whom Oscar wed for her father’s cotton fields; wistful Alexandra, Regina’s daughter; and Horace, ailing husband of Regina, between whom a breach has existed for years. When Regina Giddens cannot convince her husband to give her money she sets in motion a cunning plan which escalates once she realizes her brother intends to swindle her as well.
