Hard Mountain-Will critical injuries, criminal activity, and trespassers with a deadly secret end J. Helen Elza's epic love story that begins with Rosemillion, or, despite his unrequited love for Rose, will The Train Man, Quayle Johnson, return to save the new bride and her husband?
Marital bliss is short-lived for newlyweds Rose and Jan who suffer critical injuries in a horrific double accident. Was it fate, or was it attempted murder?
It is 1975, Rose's S&S Ranch is under siege. Vandals strike again, this time leaving the flaming-cross signature of the KKK. Rose and Mama John's families have more than they can pray over, nursing Rose and trying to run the ranch when Jimbo discovers trespassers in Rose's barn.
Nightmares and organized crime add to the horrors, prompting the return of The Train Man who learns that the trespassers pose a greater threat to his friends than their uncertain medical conditions; the strangers harbor a secret that can steal Rose and Jan's dreams, if not their lives. And to Train Man, Quayle Johnson's, mind, Rose and Jan are more than friends. They are family.
