Franny Martin is an Oklahoma farm girl who's preparing to spend the holidays alone... again. She has spent all of her adult life keeping the family farm going after her parents' death, and she struggles to make ends meet. Franny has no money to speak of, but she is clever and spirited. Her love for music drives her dream to sell the farm and move to the city.
Then Charlie Landau shows up one day, all wealth and polish, and offers to buy Franny's farm. Charlie has been trying to prove himself and meet the expectations of his wealthy father after falling short on one business venture after another. He is determined to make his latest endeavor work - running a farm - that is, after taking a few lessons from Franny.
