The time: 1944. The place: a deserted boathouse on the Talley place in Lebanon, Missouri. Matt Friedman, an accountant from St. Louis, has arrived to plead his love to Sally Talley, the susceptible but uncertain daughter of the family. Bookish, erudite, totally honest and delightfully funny, Matt refuses to accept Sally's rebuffs and her fears that her family would never approve of their marriage. Charming and indomitable, he gradually overcomes her defenses, telling his innermost secrets and, in return, learning hers as well. Gradually he tries to awaken Sally to the possibilities of a life together as two "lame ducks" who may find a wholeness rare in human relationships.
