Mary Dudley, a young Vermont woman with newborn twins, is abandoned by her husband and brother when they become Gold Rush adventurers.

While the men experience the exotic American colony in Panama and the gold fields of California, she is left to the mercy of friends and extended family. When her brother dies overseas, he bequeaths all family property to his Panamanian mistress.

This shocking calamity threatens Mary and her children with homelessness and poverty. She must defy her brother's curse in order to win her independence as a woman. In doing so, she is forced to consider a deal with a spurned suitor from her past.

A story of forgiveness, redemption and the transformation of hearts spanning the tumultuous period of Antebellum America, The Inheritance explores the devastation done to families left behind by adventurous men in the pursuit of wealth, and is based on actual family records. It presses the question of what we truly inherit.

David Lavoie has a passion for the foundations of our American society and a desire to bring great American stories to life, especially those that plumb moral and spiritual dilemmas. His family roots are in New England, but he has spent his adult life in North Carolina, Florida and Hong Kong. He has undergraduate and graduate degrees from Washington University in St. Louis.  He resides in Charlotte, North Carolina.

During the time of the Revolutionary War in New Bedford, Massachusetts, fishermen became privateers and the British Navy planned an attack to destroy the town. Bone Of My Bone tells the story of an historical family as they attempt to survive a time of war and divided family loyalties. The Jenney family are in constant turmoil, both publicly and privately—a state of being recently exacerbated by a sudden financial hardship. Isaac, the eldest son, is an innocent man striving to be a good son, husband, and father. But what he wants most is independence—a farm of his own—which his father is not eager to grant him. Ephraim, the family patriarch, is a Tory, loyal to the king. Isaac’s brother, James—a whaler, privateer and sharpshooter—is caught up in the adventure of the revolution, and is unpredictable and volatile. Another brother, Sleigh, is perhaps mentally ill, and acts out in bizarre ways that turn the community against the family. Add to this a profound family tragedy shrouded in secrecy, the violent murder of an abusive constable, and sundry addictions and thick layers of hidden darkness. The fragile fabric of the family begins to unravel as war finally comes to their doorstep. Isaac’s smart and loyal wife, Maggie, hatches a dangerous plan to save Isaac and secure his independence. Or are the family’s darkest days still to come?
