Set to Music is a collection of seven short stories.


The title story, Set to Music, tells of Anne, a pianist faced with an overwhelming obstacle that only love and perhaps even a miracle can transcend. Deedu is a tender and engaging story about a special friendship between a Russian immigrant and a child. In the Road Ahead, doubts and fears turn to triumphs for a group of actors encountering a major detour as they head for the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Lilacs is about sweeping away the lapse of time, two survivors of the Second World War re-live their past as they meet again. In The Paper Boat, life and death in a hospital morgue leaves the reader wrestling with some issues about how we navigate this world. In Head Over Heart an island resort provides a quiet retreat for a parent's soul-searching.
