Epilogue October of 1874 Summary The boy from Georgia had never gone home and is now Ruby’s husband. They have three boys that work and play hard around Ada’s farm. Ada prepares her traditional October picnic and looks with appreciation on the autumn colors of Cold Mountain.

Stobrod is still with them. There is also a young girl, Ada’s daughter. Stobrod plays his fiddle at the fireside and the girl sings. Then Ada reads Baucis and Philemon to the children. It has grown dark and it is time for bed.


Notes

The idyllic epilogue shows nothing of the tragedy and sorrow that preceeded. Ada has grown to love Cold Mountain as Inman did. It fits then, that the final literary reference is to Baucis and Philemon, a story where lovers are rewarded after death with the opportunity of being together in nature.
