Pianist Joseph Donovan was tired of his uncle’s interference in his career. In fact, he was tired of his career: concerts, recording sessions, pressure to compose new musical arrangements, and never having a minute to himself.

In the process of negotiating his “capture”, he found himself fascinated with her. More surprising was that the passion he felt inspired him to start composing again.
