Summary
When musicologist Doctor Lily Penleric is passed over for a prominent teaching position, she decides to leave the city to visit her sister in the rugged mountains of Appalachia. While there, Lily, discovers a well spring of emotional tunes passed down through generations from the original Irish and Scottish immigrants who have settled in the area. Determined to document the history of the songs, and the recording of them as well, she falls in love with a local musician and is profoundly changed by the generosity, strength and freedom of the fiercely proud mountain people.
