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.

Summary: A light drama with quite a bit of humor in the last chapters, the story focus is on Adam but all members of the family as well as Jamie and Candy play significant roles in the telling of this story. There are two OCs too who are necessary to move the story forward. There is a Part 2 which is a short follow-up story.

Summary: Certain hurts never heal and some scars never truly fade. Adam is aware of this now, however, simply being aware doesn’t make moving forward any easier. Even a seemingly normal trip home with his brother blisters the scars that he thought were healing. A WHN for The Crucible.
