Synopsis

Once a talented classical pianist, Ingrid Green gave up her dreams for life in a small town with dairy farmer Norman and their daughter Rachel. An iconoclast who doesn't quite fit in with middle American life, Ingrid is always battling the one-track minds of those around her, whether it's to save an historic building from destruction or persuading the stodgy church choir to try some new tunes. So when Norman announces that he's planning a classical music concert for the next local fair, Ingrid is skeptical about the town's reaction -- but music may be just the thing to make everyone's dreams come true.
