The Hands of Gravity and Chance

Monday, March 28th, 2016

The Hands of Gravity and Chance

A second novel by Thomas Ogden (Karnac) promises to be even better than his first.

The Hands of Gravity and Chance is a spell-binding story in which parents find themselves promising and then rescinding what they do not have to give. The story opens with the fall of a thirteen-year-old girl down the stairs of the family house, an event that generates fault lines that spread both forward and backward in time, releasing an explosive energy of love and fear, bitterness and remorse.
