Episode Summary

EDIT
Isaiah and Grace Edwards are both delighted with their new family, but trouble soon begins between Isaiah and his oldest adopted son John. Isaiah does not understand the boy's interest in books and poetry, and he would much prefer a son with whom he could farm and hunt. That clearly is not the kind of life John enjoys, but Isaiah keeps pushing it, and when the two go on a hunting trip together, the unthinkable occurs, placing their entire relationship on the line.moreless
