Summary: It is October, a time of looking back and giving thanks for a harvest of blessings. For Joe Cartwright, this is impossible. The autumn marks one year since he lost his beloved brother, Hoss. Needing to escape, Joe heads out to visit to Carrie Pickett. He never makes it. Instead, Joe finds himself lost and alone and badly injured. Half-dead, he works his way toward a plume of smoke rising in the distance. Little does Joe suspect that what he finds at the end of his journey will change his life forever.
