Elsa and Thore, 81-years old meet at a bridge club and fall madly in love. Neither of them knew they would experience love again so late in life. It feels amazing, but not everybody approves of their unexpected relationship. Secrets, greed and jealousy grow in both their families. Children and grand-children, daughters- and sons-in-law, everybody seem to have their own motive to stop the romance.
When Elsa and Thore invite their families to an engagement party in the archipelago, matters are brought to their head. And everything that couldn’t happen, happens.
As Sure as Fate is a relationship-drama with warmth, romance and lots of black humour. Birgitta Bergin’s style is fast, free and highly addictive.
In a short amount of time she has managed to place herself as one of bigger the modern feel-good writers. Her series about Anna Holm has sold around 50 000 copies.
