 Are Our Daily Lives Predetermined? Alvira Michaels explores the question in The Hand of Fate
This work of fiction is the debut novel from Ms Michaels. In the first book of a duology, “The Hand of Fate” centres on the life of Alexandra Gray who emigrates from London to San Francisco once she finds the love of her life. The gritty story leading up to the character’s point of departure is a thought-provoking one. The book explores some interesting issues, and you get the sense that the author wants to convey the message that, as human beings, our existence should be more about living life with a sense of purpose and meaning rather than getting caught up in stereotypes and race.

A strong supernatural element runs throughout the book, with mention of ghosts, magic and divination. There is a good sprinkling of sassy humour too, with Alexandra forming life-long bonds in her new home country. Her quest to find the truth and what was hidden from her comes to a satisfactory conclusion. To quote the author: “This is a story about a woman who overcame adversity despite the odds stacked against her, a story about not giving up, no matter what life throws at you. ‘The Hand of Fate’ is a reminder that although some things are fated, we ultimately have a hand in our own destiny. If you have faith and believe in the magic of the universe, anything is possible. And sometimes those who have passed before us help light the way.” The book sends a powerful message.

This novel crosses genres, and though supernatural in content it could also sit under the banner of paranormal romance, women’s fiction or literary fiction. A good adult read “The Hand of Fate” is available to purchase now from the following online bookstores:-
