During the early days of World War II, on a small island in Chesapeake Bay, twins sisters have a rivalry like brothers Esau and Jacob from the Bible. Caroline, the younger twin, is the family's favorite and the most popular girl in town. She is blonde, beautiful, and has real musical talent, blessed with an angel's voice, but she is entitled. Louise, the plain and hardworking older sister, is resentful from years of being ignored and passed over. Thoughts of escaping the small island drive Louise to try and work her way out, but the arrival of an embittered old ship captain prompts her to stay and seek the gift that is truly hers. Dove family approved!
