The lonely widow of a World War I hero who was killed in action seeks someone to put flowers on her grave after she dies, and finds warmth where she least suspected it in his heartwarming tale of compassion and friendship. Old Fannie Fairchild has a reputation for being gruff, but she wasn't always that way. A happy girl in her youth, she has hidden behind an impenetrable wall of bitterness ever since her husband George was killed on the battlefield. Enter Louise - a teenage girl who recognizes that all Fanny ever wanted was to grow old with the love of her life. Louise loves Fanny, but will the curmudgeonly old woman accept that love before it's too late? If she does, her grave will always have flowers, even long after she's gone.
