Synopsis: When Professor Edward Randall looks in a mirror, he sees a not-yet-forty cheerless face. Divorced and separated from his two small daughters, he has settled into a solitary, spartan existance in a Northern university town. That life ends abruptly in Houston, Texas, when he reads a controversial paper before an audience of hostile economists. One of his auditors-a late arrival-is someone he almost has forgotten: his childhood sweetheart, a neglected Indian girl living on the farm next to his parent's farm, someone who clung to him as "the only one in the world I have to care for!"
She now is an elegantly attired woman, recently widowed, who peremptorily takes him for a tour of Houston in an expensive Italian car, a tour ending in her mansion in a millionaires enclave.
Through the three days and nights that follow, they renew a long-ended relationship. But will the fortuitous encounter grow into anything meaningful? Can there be any basis for a long-term relationship?
For Randall the weekend affair offered little promise of leading to a permanent relationship-certainly not to a harmonious one between someone who listens to Bach and Beethoven and a woman who prefers Country and Western music.
About the Author: Orville Palmer lives with his wife near Gainesville, Florida and is currently working on his next novel.
