....and sat down beside her, the final volumn of a trilogy is a tale of life's circles. We follow Samantha and her best friend on their adventures as they begin new chapters and relive some of the past. Samanth, orphaned, cared for by a succession of foster parents, changes careers and locales, learning, one can only hope the meaning of the word, 'serendipity'. The reader meets Mafia dons, past and present, and wannabees, a medical examiner, a budding terrorist, and Televison broadcasters. A highly unlikely story----but then, the best tales hardly ever make much sense.
