Lucy-Ann and Will work together tirelessly to construct another of Wilma’s muskrat dam projects and hilly borrows their little bulldozer, builds a raft and floats it to their homestead on Bannock Lake.
Tragedy strikes when the Brasfield house burns to the ground and from all beliefs only two people survive. Chapter four passes by rather uneventful except for the beginning of the new trapping season.
Another wife is added to the fold. The two Buttram families get together for a goose and duck hunt which would begin an annual thing with them.
Throughout chapter six Will and family begin a quest to free as many oppressed girls as they can with help from Lucy-Ann’s Uncle Elmer.
Meghan and her sister Martha experience a beautiful Christmas like they haven’t seen since they were small children.
Meghan and Will strike out for Lilley Lake to begin trapping operations there.
The Buttram Family were slapped in the face by discrimination and Will buys his Cousin Liam’s property. Lucy-Ann joins Will at Lilley Lake. Meanwhile a banished Amish girl joins the ranks at Willow Lake.
Meghan returns home with a friend who has fled to begin work at Bennett’s north End Post.
Another runner joins the ranks and uses Will badly for her own wants and gains. On March 4th Lucy-Ann gives birth to a boy – again at The Homestead.
The trapping finally winds down and Lucy-Ann and Will head on home to finish out the season.
