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.

Summary: In 1873, the deaths of Hoss and Alice so close together left Ben and Joe physically and emotionally, bankrupt. Father and son masked their grief, each hiding serious health issues from the other. By a miracle, both men survived and in the aftermath, Dr. Paul Martin prescribed the whole truth and nothing but the truth as a remedy. In 1875, their pact is still intact…or is it? A sequel to “My Father’s Heartbeat.” It is helpful but not necessary to have read the first story.
