Show synopsis Maggie Zimmerman's extraordinary singing voice brought both applause and devastation into her life. After the death of her little brother, Maggie abandoned all musical aspirations and went into social hibernation, blaming herself entirely for his death. In a last ditch effort to bring the light back into their daughter's eyes, Maggie's parents send her to Crawford University to study music. Reluctantly, Maggie agrees to attend but determines to keep her promise to her little brother and never sing again. When entered into the music-performance program against her will, Maggie grapples with her ability to keep her priorities straight should she succeed in the professional music world. Her potential to become a world-class vocalist is undeniable, but her lack of confidence in her character and the promise she made three years ago holds her back. Soon Maggie strikes up a friendship with Chad Kennely, the only person who doesn't have a vested interest in her success. After realizing they're both guarding secrets from their pasts, their friendship borders on something more, but as Chad quickly makes a one-eighty and runs from his mistakes, Maggie lags behind. Even though Maggie has witnessed a change in Chad, she's still not certain God can forgive her for what she's done. Join Joyce Jones as she orchestrates a masterpiece in Deceptive Cadencea story of a girl struggling to forgive herself and accept God's plan for her life.
