Lonesome Mountain

Ojai—Pink Moment Promises

The simplicity of Ojai farm girl Meggie Baxter’s life is shattered when she must choose between loyalty to her rough-hewn friend, Rusty, and the dashing Charles.

Amid tragedy and loss, Meggie clings to the promise of God’s love. The “pink moment,” the evening sunset casting a rosy hue like a prayer across the Topa Topa Mountains, points her again and again to faith and courage.

Midst the idyllic beauty of the Ojai Valley and the crushing forces of change, will Meggie stay true to her roots? Will the sacrifice sparing Rusty’s life be enough, or will fate destroy it all?
