Mrs. Charity Bingham and her twin daughters, Hannah and Hepzibah (Heppie), make a cameo appearance in Chapter One of Gone for a Soldier. Charity’s husband Joseph and their daughter Jessica (Jessie) are mentioned in The Man from Shenandoah. Jessie and her brother Lucas appear in the final scene of Ride to Raton.

In Trail of Storms, Jessie and her family more or less take center stage for a while, until James Owen shows up. Then fireworks happen!

Remember, James as much as jilted Jessie back in Virginia. Through no fault of his own. But still!
