When Nelda and Lute made love, their hearts and bodies sang in a rapturous duet... until the death of their infant daughter drove them into discord and destroyed their marriage....
Years later, Nelda returns to Iowa, anxious to reassess her future -- and her past -- and seeking respite from her taxing career as an interior designer. Her reunion with Lute, now a rugged, prosperous farm owner, is fraught with conflict... and charged with desire. Will Lute's contempt for Nelda's cosmopolitan ways doom them to repeat their tragic refrain? Or will the lingering strains of their happier memories surge into a new -- and sweeter -- passion's song?
