The Beauty of Darkness (mcfair_58)

A sequel to The Friendship, The Guilty, The Tall Stranger, The Crucible, and The Storm.  Jimmy Partridge. Margie Owens. Peter Kane. Laura White. Things were far from routine on the Ponderosa. His life – his family – was a shambles. That indefinable ‘thing’ that held them together, what made them ‘the’ Cartwrights, was lost.  Ben Cartwright despaired of ever getting it back.
