Spinsters

Pagan Kennedy

Fannie and Doris, middle-aged sisters and spinsters, have been taking care of their father for their entire adult lives.

When he dies in 1968, they hit the road in their Plymouth Valiant to take a much-needed vacation, to find themselves after years of living in a world soley inhabited by their immediate family.
