Indigo's opera house was a gift from Alexandre Valois to his wife long before the Civil War. Marjo Savoy, head of the opera house committee, is determined that the historic building will never be sold.
Paul Clermont, the current owner, has no interest in holding on to the property he's inherited. A photojournalist who spends his life on the road, he values his freedom too much to be burdened by real estate.
But something keeps drawing him backthe quiet beauty of the bayou, the stirring music of his Acadian ancestors or maybe Marjo herself. After years of wandering, he's beginning to wonder if this is where he belongs.
