In 1960, Page Holden leaves her small-town life behind to pursue her dream of becoming a concert pianist. She’s eventually accepted into Ohio State’s prestigious School of Music, but a college campus the sixties can be a tumultuous place for a sheltered Midwestern girl. The master teacher she’s assigned to is the infamously difficult Professor Weiss. But his demanding criticism is tempered by the encouragement Page gets from John, a handsome young doctor with an interest in classical music--and a particular classical musician. Yet even John’s attentions are more complicated than they seem, testing Page’s resolve and identity. Can she stay true to what she believes and still find happiness, even with so many distractions?
