Camille Gardner must return to Samford, LA at the demand of her Uncle Scott who is also her boss. A promotion and “no travel” are the hook he uses to get Camille, the landman, to Samford to close a deal with landowners holding out on leasing their mineral rights to J&S Oil. The landowners are a community of folk artists. Camille, fortunately, is an art collector and loves discovering new artists. She has to balance her growing involvement in the lives of the artists with the task she was given of closing the deal. But Camille has long-buried sadness about Samford as it is the last place she lived before her father put the company before the family.
