The little girl stood back and watched her daddy as he knelt by the graveside in the little cemetery nestled amongst the trees. The smell of sage wafted gently on the breeze as it blew down the rolling hills just beyond the fence line surrounding this lonely place. Her dark eyes registered concern and wonder as she stood with her head tilted to one side, her long, black hair cascading down over one shoulder. The man laid the bouquet of spring flowers on the head of the grave and bowed his head in prayer for a short time. Eddie Edwards fought in Iraq, was injured, and lost his wife and his sister. His life, bombarded with loss and pain, brought him deep into despair where he began wrestling with his faith in God. Harold Southwick's The Trail from Here, the sequel to The Way Back Home, follows Eddie Edwards's story as he gains perspective and learns to trust t only others but God as well. Realizing his self-centeredness, he comes to realize he has people that need him, like his daughter, Katrina. In his attempts to meet those needs and help at his family's ranch, he finds adventure in the mysterious disappearance of livestock from the Edwards's land and surrounding ranches. After stumbling into a covert law enforcement position, he joins an investigation with his partner, Lindsey, who might just help him to learn to love again.
