Publisher's Summary

What determines the course of our lives? Chance...or destiny?
On Midsummer's Day, 1982, three-year-old Azalea Ives is found alone at a seaside fairground.
One year later, her mother's body washes up on a beach - her link to Azalea unnoticed.
On Midsummer's Day, 1992, her adoptive parents are killed in a Ugandan rebel uprising; Azalea is narrowly rescued by a figure from her past.
Terrified that she, too, will meet her fate on Midsummer's Day, Azalea approaches Thomas Post, an expert in debunking coincidences. Azalea's past, he insists, is random - but as Midsummer's Day approaches, he worries that she may bring fate upon herself.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

This book started out strong, with a compelling narrative. About half way through the story, it began to bog down as the author went into detailed discussions of the mathematical odds of circumstantial occurrence. This slowed the otherwise interesting story down to a crawl, and it never recovered. So, I'm not sure I could recommend this, although I thought the narrator, Steven Crossley, was excellent.
