Sam, his ex wife Darlene and their daughter, Jamie.
Savannah Greer left town as a teen but is back for her fathers funeral.
After the funeral all the people her age arrange for a get together. When in high school they were known as the 6 pack club and didn't go anywhere without one another.
Time to catch up with what everyone is doing and with whom they are with.
Her and her mom, Ruth are having a hard time getting along, they've drifted apart over the 10 years Savvy has been gone.
small town festivals are really cool to hear about, all the activities and the food.

This character driven second chance at love romance is a strong tale,
She left Placid on the Mississippi Delta when she was eighteen years old to become a big city lawyer. Several years later attorney Savannah Greer returns home from Chicago for her father's funeral and to end the estrangement with her widow mom Ruth. However, Ruth refuses to welcome her prodigal daughter home; instead choosing as much as possible polite avoidance.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

When she fled her family's ranch, Savannah also left her boyfriend Samuel Jamison McBriar. She never forgot him while he also never moved passed his first and only love. Savannah plans to leave immediately but finds it difficult to say goodbye to Sam who manages her mom's ranch. He struggles between wanting to make love with her forever and needing her to just leave as he fears he will not mend from another broken heart.
This character driven second chance at love romance is a strong tale, but ironically the key poignant relationship is not with the lead couple but that between mother and daughter. The three prime protagonists turn the entertaining The One Left Behind into a warm regional family drama summed up nicely by Sam's dad when he advises his son to "get the corncob out of your keister".
