The Bachelor (William’s House, Volume IV)
The final installment in Tito Perdue’s William’s House tour de force, The Bachelor continues to chart young Albert Pefley’s journey to manhood, this time across sea crossings and in a foreign land. Having secured work with an exotic engineering firm in Chile, Albert endures an endless voyage and a drastic culture shock, in time winning the respect not only of his colleagues, but of a wealthy family and, even more importantly, their daughter. Albert must finally decide where his loyalties lie, if his heart belongs in the mountains and gardens of dusky Chile, or in the sweet tea rhythms of his beloved Alabama, where his mother grows older each day. Material success or maintaining the hearth: this is the dilemma that lies at the heart of Albert’s journey.
