book cover for  Destinies

Three very different women whose lives come to intersect as a result of their involvement through the years with Jamie [The Marmalade Man of the book's original title]. Sherrill is a young actress on her way from Toronto to New York, headed for success and disillusionment. Dene is a toy designer on her way home to Toronto from New York, still trying, years after the fact, to deal with a terrible, secret tragedy. And Anne is an American-born researcher, living in Toronto, trying to deal with the loss of her youth, and of Jamie.

In the course of ten years, these people connect at different times and in different places, each leaving an indelible impression on the other. Until a terrifying hotel fire unites them in the most unexpected fashion.
