The parting of the Ways is a natural corollary of the first story in the book,
"Short Stories for Coffee break." A young girl going out to a foreign country to study. What else does she do. How much does she divulge to her parents. Does a genetic inheritance play some part in her ultimate behaviour? Is there a knight in shining armour standing by? There is tense drama which will keep you turning page after page. You could not predict some of the things which take place. Bridgette's aim is to hurt someone, and she would employ any means to do so.
