In small town America of the turn of the century, both thinking and making a living for oneself were for men only. But at 25, the beautiful and talented Violet Carpenter chose to wait for the love that would last a lifetime. Obliged to support hereself, Violet opens her home to tourists and her heart to poetry, little dreaming that both will lead to romantic crossroades, and that her fabled golden nightingale will sing at last for love.
