Summary :

For Maria, nothing is certain. Her life is a chain of accidents. Untouched by friendship, unimpressed by the devoted Ronny and his endless marriage proposals, she lives in a world of her own, but not of her own making. Even as she stumbles on through university, work, marriage and motherhood, Maria finds it hard to see what all the fuss is about.

Will our heroine ever be able to control the direction of her life, or will it end, as it began, by accident? What does chance next have in store for her?
