I loved this series. again bad, unexpected things happen to good people all because everyone has free agency. Christopher and Deborah are planning their wedding when tragedy strikes...this parents are killed in a fire leaving his 5 siblings in his care. he brings them home to Texas with some apprehension about what deborah will say to a ready made family.

Meanwhile, Steward still in trying to extract revenge on the Vandermarks through prolonging the building of the mill which has a contract with the Vandermark's exclusive sale of logs. Money is tight everywhere. People are leaving the town because of no work. The white supremacy group is still attacking the black community and now is threatening all the white folks who are helping them including Deborah.

The Vandermarks find a way around the contract with the logs and accept "gifts," as payment with old time friends. Jael, Stewart's wife and friend to the Vandermarks finds out that Stewart must be married to her for 6 years in order to get all his inheritance. Jael used this as leverage to help her friends.

Euphanel and Argin take on the responsibility for the siblings of Christopher. Euphanel gets to fulfill her desire to raise more children.

Deborah and Christopher are finally married even though several things try to interfere. After the ceremony, the White group comes to deliver a message. Jake takes it upon himself to stand in between the gun and Deborah. Argin in shot.

Wording in the contract help the Vandermarks once and for all to eliminate the threat of Steward when a tornado comes and "the act of God" clause helps them to renegotiate. Jael's father helps to rebuild the town and Steward leaves back to the east while Jael stays in Texas although still married to Stewart.
