Charlie – TYGER is now available via Audible. https://www.amazon.com/Tyger/dp/B013H9G860 I do agree with you re Rodska; he is a truly superb narrator.

This is what got me into so much trouble early on. The Wedding Shroud tells the story of Caecilia, a young Roman girl married to an Etruscan nobleman, Vel Mastarna, to seal a truce. These stories, along with the three short novels of Pale Horse, Pale Rider (1939), the single greatest artistic work authored by a Texas writer, define a world of fading nineteenth-century moral assurance symbolized by an older generation played off against a younger one, dramatized chiefly in the developing consciousness of Porter's alter ego, Miranda.

That woman was Marie Dorion Venier Toupin, the Ioway Indian woman who accompanied the Astor overland expedition in 1812. And as political unrest inflames her country, she reunites with her one true love -- and gives him the strength to go on.

Conflict is established and readers, especially if they sympathize (not necessarily like) the character, become tense about what will happen.
