The author, Rebecca Hunn, works as an oil and gas leasing agent in West Virginia, and her novel is informed by her own personal adventures in this capacity. The plot centers around a family that wants to sell their rights to a big company. Two grand-nieces and two grand-nephews have inherited the property, but one of the nephews, Joe Tredloe, is missing. The company agent, Donna Cain, works closely with Joe’s sisters who want to find him, but she is wary of his brother Harold, an ex-marine.
