This collection from author Mari Collier contains sixteen short tales, ranging from the ancient past to our own era and into the far future.
In the past, a man learns of his twin's demise and receives a dire warning. In modern times, a widow learns her beloved daughter has rejected something they both once held dear. In another contemporary story, a young lady struggles to bake a Plain Cake that her grandmother will accept.
The futuristic tales contain a short story from the planet Dunbar, now inhabited by an alien race called Thalians. In another tale, archaeologists visit a shattered Earth to discover a Woman in White, who has waited centuries for them.
Not all of the stories will have a twisted ending, but you can still expect a surprise at the end.
