Georgie Amberson Minafer is viewed with contempt by the residents of Midland. Since his antics as a spoiled youth, they have longed to see him get knocked down a notch or two. But no one could have imagined the pounding he would go through.

Inspired by Booth Tarkington's Pulitzer Prize-winning "The Magnificent Ambersons," SPLENDOR IN MIDLAND tells the story of Georgie and his families, the Ambersons and Minafers, as well as the Morgans, as they all face financial and personal upheavals.
