After they marry, it quickly becomes apparent Cable has no intention of leaving his beloved hometown of Highcoal. Reluctant at first, Song is soon swept up in the strange, funny, and always interesting highjinks of the little mining town's quirky citizens. But things turn deadly serious when, to save her husband and her town, she must put on the red helmet of the new coal miner and make a life-changing sacrifice.Coming in February 2008!
