Loren's sister, and Grace are introduced, with one of Olive's cowhands
bringing with him a sickness. Michaela works feverishly against an influenza
("the grippe") epidemic, trying to save the town's inhabitants, many of
whom are hostile to her modern methods. The epidemic isolates the town
and causes panic among the townspeople. Emily's husband dies as does Ingrid's
father. Charlotte's former boarding house is used as a clinic and Michaela
sparingly dispenses her pitifully small amount of quinine.
