Fate - fickle, mysterious and sometimes very cruel.

From the outback of Australia to the Hebrides, from a city casino to the confines of sheltered housing, this collection of stories shows the hand of Fate at work in the lives and relationships of a wide variety of characters.

There are the members of a writers' group who learn a new and surprising lesson, a couple coming to terms with the restrictions of age, parents forced to acknowledge the growing maturity of their child, a man who makes a bargain with unforeseen results.

In some stories, the characters encounter Fate in the guise of a stranger or unexpected visitor, or while experiencing significant - sometimes life-changing - events.

In others, the characters are facing up to the effects of a fateful experience in their past. All the stories will leave you with as many questions as answers and make you think anew about the effect of Fate on all our lives.
