A Story of Courage and Strength
In 1996, Nikky Harris is the image of perfection—her hair, her toned body, her chiseled face, and her big bucks. What we see on the outside isn’t what counts, or is it? Nicky is an example of what people want to see. People rarely take the time to look beneath the superficial layer of what made Nikky, Nikky. Leaving Serenity shares the story of this young woman’s struggle to find herself at a time when women struggled to be seen in the world.

“I liked all of The Railroad Man. It was fast paced, and easy to read and understand. Not one page of this novel bored me. There were no wasted words. The characters in the novel were so well described you could understand each one. I would definitely read other books by this author.”
Set in the mid-twentieth century, this is the story of one man’s life, his love, his success, and his sorrow. His strengths and weaknesses cross the boundaries of time and reach into our hearts, because everyone knows the Railroad Man.
