“In the aftermath of the Civil War, an aging itinerant news reader, Jefferson Kidd, agrees to transport a young captive of the Kiowa, Johanna, back to her people in this exquisitely rendered, morally complex, multilayered novel of historical fiction explores the boundaries of family, responsibility, honor, and trust.” From Amazon: “This tale of these two making their way through perils both natural (swollen rivers) and human (hostile tribes and male predators) on the lengthy trip from Wichita Falls to San Antonio is completely absorbing.” “It’s short, perfectly paced and constructed, and chronicles Kidd’s journey with Johanna: both the physical voyage they make across the Texas landscape, and the obstacles they surmount together, and his internal journey, as he bonds with the young girl who begins to call him, alternatively, ‘Keh-pun’, or the Kiowa word for grandfather. When Kidd discovers her aunt and uncle have a reputation for using their young relatives as indentured servants and working them to the bone, the dilemma is even more dramatic. What can or should he do, when all he wants is a peaceful old age?”

“When New Yorker Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home and quality time with the man she hopes to marry. But Nick has failed to give his girlfriend a few key details. One, that his childhood home looks like a palace; two, that he grew up riding in more private planes than cars; and three, that he just happens to be the country’s most eligible bachelor. On Nick’s arm, Rachel may as well have a target on her back the second she steps off the plane, and soon, her relaxed vacation turns into an obstacle course of old money, new money, nosy relatives, and scheming social climbers…a dizzily shopaholic comedy of crass manners!”
