Gifted Heart

In 1947, Ray Petriani flees Texas with a wife and young family. He takes a job in California and is sent to inland China on a business venture. An exchange with a local potentate provides him with two gifts he doesn’t want, cannot reject, and must protect. The first, a gilded antique music box said to have belonged to a Chinese Emperor, uncovers additional doubts which raise further problems. Ray believes its significance lies in how it was given. But the second gift, a beautiful female slave, rocks his world.

How to Inherit a Wife

The uncle of Woodrow (Woody) Hancock wants to bet he could force Woody to marry. Woody declines the outlandish wager. When his uncle dies, Woody inherits a farm.
