As a young and rising opera star in early 1900s Germany, Katharina Ernst basks in the glory of performing on stage. Singing is like breathing to her, and with her career headed for the top, she can't wait to see what the future holds. But fate has something else in store. She meets and falls in love with a rich, handsome aristocrat, Fredric Albers. After a whirlwind courtship, Fredric asks her to marry him, and she accepts on one condition: she is able to continue to perform onstage. Katharina believes her love for this man and the promise of a family will be enough to fill the emptiness in her soul. All is well until the tragic loss of their son. Katharina doesn't understand how God could allow this to happen to her, and her very faith falls into question. When Katharina has the opportunity to return to stage, she seizes it, even though it has disastrous consequences for her marriage. When the threat of war looms on the horizon, Katharina has some hard choices to make, ones that will test her faith and change her life forever
