Cold Mountain | Epilogue : October of 1874 | Summary



About 10 years after Inman's death, readers are returned to Black Cove. The boy from Georgia, whose name is Reid, never left the farm. He is married to Ruby, and they have three boys. Ada has a daughter of her own, made possible by the brief but sweet moments she spent with Inman. The girl is tall and slender. Stobrod also lives on the farm and contributes by doing chores and delighting them all with his fiddle playing.

It is the final picnic of the year, a beautiful night in October. The food and music are delightful, and the night ends with Ada reading aloud.


All is well in Black Cove and life has gone on, as Ada has learned: "The seasons came around and around and had neither inauguration nor epilogue." The farm is lively with the new life of children and touched by love, memories, and promises of a future as "demanding as always."
