It appears that Jack has changed a great deal, leading some people to believe that this is not actually Jack but an impostor. Laurel herself is unsure, but willing to take the man into her home, and perhaps later into her heart...

Jack gives hope to everyone again by starting a tobacco industry on his own farm. Everyone in the village, including black people have ownership in Jack Sommersby's very promising business... everything seem to be more promising to everyone but racism and a jealous man are some of the struggling terms to overwin.
