Camille reflects back on how her deceased mom must be horrified with the life she lives, but just because one comes from a family of former wealth and standing means nothing when one needs food and shelter. Camille has become a traveling card player staying in a town long enough to beat the locals.

In Willow Grove, Camille and Ty are attracted to one another, but both have doubts when it comes to relationships as he still reels over his loss and she over betrayal. As they fall in love, many townsfolk play matchmaker, but others want her out of his life.
