Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Jacqueline Bisset stars as Maggie, a Keats-quoting professor of English literature, on the verge of celebrating her 25th anniversary. But Maggie's euphoria evaporates when she discovers that her husband Tom has been flagrantly cheating on her for these many years. Dispirited, she returns to her hometown of Harvest Moon, retreating to the tranquil lake where she had fallen in love with the late Patrick Fleming three decades earlier. By and by, the fiftysomething Maggie is attracted to Patrick's handsome son Tom (Eric Mabius), who is literally half her age. The question: Is Maggie truly enamored of Tom, or is she merely romancing the ghost of Tom's father? Valerie Harper provides some much-needed relief from the overall bathos in the traditional "wisecracking best friend" role. Based on a novel by K.C. McKinnon, the made-for-TV Dancing at the Harvest Moon first aired October 20, 2002, on CBS.
