Unknown date in the early 1930’s. A benefactor is pressing Alice to marry him. Though she has appreciated his help, and doesn’t want to hurt anyone, she just doesn’t love him. She is torn between avoiding the man, and leaving town with him to marry him out of duty.
The choir meets to practice, and sing in 4 part harmony. Alice spills the beans to the choir as they all talk about relationships. A choir member delivers a solo. Then Alice sings a romantic duet with Cliff. She runs out after the song.
Has the talk with the choir helped her to make the right decision, or chased her off? What is the right decision? Which will win out, love, or duty?
The decision is made, and as is typical for this series, the choir winds up with a rousing hymn. Bringing in the Sheaves.
