In The Returning, the war between the Uplanders and the Downlanders is over. But everyone in the village of Kayforl is still struggling with the after effects. Cam returns home from the fighting maimed and struggles to make a new life for himself. But his betrothal to Graceful Fenister is broken off by her father. His own father refuses to let him do any real work around the farm, saying Cam has already done enough. But that just leaves him feeling useless.
