Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Minnesota, 1911. Nilda Carlson is torn between life in the city of Blackduck and spending time with her family back home on the farm. Her employer, Mrs. Schoenleber, gives her more and more responsibility and experience. Still new to America herself, Nilda focuses on the area's immigrant community, but she'll have to fight to get her ideas accepted by the locals and donors alike. One of her greatest joys is her weekly piano lesson with Fritz Larsson. When an affluent young woman moves to Blackduck and monopolizes Fritz's attention, how can Nilda hope to compete with such a sophisticated beauty?
