eBook Description: In everyone's life, whether gradual or forced by outside circumstances, change is inevitable. The characters in these stories face crucial problems and lose all sense of direction. Change appears in the sinister form of an enemy in The Blameless. In The Angel of Darkness, it surfaces as the deadly inner-struggle of a young divorcee contemplating suicide. Whatever the case, each person sets out on some new, sometimes frightening, course--no longer drifting.

Voices surrounded Nellie threatening her like spurts of wind bent on total destruction. Her son's voice, trained by tedious practice to assume a tone of calm authority, and her daughter's voice, even more certain, never allowing for margins of error. Why did they speak in front of her as if she could no longer think or feel?
Snatches from Jane: "Mother's not capable of ... can't live alone now."
Snatches from John. She knew his gray eyes would be as somber as if he were calling in a note at the bank. "We can't ... Mother should..."
Nellie's dark eyes remained locked on her shoes, drab, old shoes with bulging tops and the heavy-tread soles Jane insisted upon. Old woman's shoes!
