A lot has happened in Hammil Valley, California, before Peter Thorn arrives as a spy for the state government. Newly widowed Rose Wilson, faced with the choice of staying on the ranch she had inherited from her dead husband or returning to her home in Los Angeles, is being used as a pawn in a battle between her neighbor Jim O’Connell, who owns most of that valley, and an enemy from his past. Peter learns the true nature of life in the valley and how he fits in as the battle reaches its climax. And it is the start of Peter’s journey to become a true hero. This is a story of “What if…” that we hope will inspire others to see the potential of the world around them.
