Karma, or Kismet, or Fate

I was just wondering how you felt about karma. Or fate, or kismet, or destiny. 

Any word that implies pre-destination in the sense that a person doesn’t steer his of her own ship.

I mean, a coachman is relied on to get his young passenger to her destination, regardless of the weather or the time of the night. Whether or not he gets her there safely is out of her hands. She has to blindly trust him to get her where she needs to be. 

Her karma, or kismet, or fate, whatever you want to call it, is in her coachman’s hands.

Read a bit here to see what I mean:

Finders Keepers

An Almost Gothic Love Affair

Book Cover- Finders Keepers - An Almost Gothic Love Affair

In a time when women were disposable, a young woman is sent off into the wilderness to be married to a stranger.
The year is 1749, October 31, All Hallows Eve.

What she finds on her arrival is enough to make her skin crawl. Limping footsteps, blood-curdling screams, smoking torches, and a house on a cliff… A man she only sees in the dark, his breathing labored behind a mask.

All she wanted, was to be respectfully married, to be mistress of her own home, children – not to have her baby stolen as good as from her body!

In the words of the man behind the mask:
“A betrothal is as good as the wedding vows. You cannot leave.”
“Am I your prisoner?”
“You shall stay here until you bear me a child. Then you can stay or go, the choice shall be mine!”

The one person who might have protected her, her self-appointed guardian, Alexander Verhagen, was an unaproachable, grumpy man who didn’t have any regard for her.

Her only ally seemed to be the housekeeper, and she was tied by loyalty to the master of the house.
