The Past Dies Hard is chapter 2 of Fine Line, the sequel to Woodcutter’s Revival. Both books are written by Jerry Slauter. Fine Line is due to be released in mid-2014.

In the Past dies Hard, Victoria and Michael travel from Discovery to Wellspring by rail. Victoria is still grieving deeply after losing her husband and father within one week of each other the previous spring. Her uncle Michael knows Victoria needs someone to listen and he should not offer advice or attempt to “fix” her situation.

One piece of advice he must offer; however, is that a person grieving so deeply should make no major decisions in the first year. Victoria must decide whether she wants to sell the mines and her share of the town of Discovery to Robert Conner, crooked prosecuting attorney of Wellspring and the only other shareholder of Thomas Mines. To sell is a decision. To not sell is a decision.

They are to meet with Stewart Taylor and James Peterson, Stewart’s boss for legal advice. Here is an excerpt from chapter 2:

Victoria and Michael caught the Ten-Fifty-Five in Discovery. As Victoria stepped from the platform onto the train, she remembered the last time she boarded in Junction. She and Raymond were on their honeymoon. Her father was also aboard that train and discerned that she and Raymond were returning to Discovery from their elopement. Now, she would never see her husband or father again, at least on this side of heaven.

With that realization, she turned her face to the window. Michael, sitting beside her could tell she was not just gazing at the scenery. Rather, she was attempting to conceal the tears welling in her eyes. The numbness and shock were wearing off. She said, “I feel like I'm attempting to cope with the day to day survival. Some days are tolerable. Some seem not to be.”
