Designed by Providence
Designed by Providence was a manuscript uncovered by the author's son and grandson many years after it was first written. As it was never intended for publication, the work has an intimate, personal tone. It is a tribute to early British literature but is set within a post-war context. It tells of a man who, on the way to London, makes an unscheduled stop in the town of Lambton. This unexpected visitor is greeted with mixed hospitality, but his presence nonetheless has an affect on the town and its future. A thematic element in the story is the interesting relationship between time atnd words, words and a machine. The author offers insightful thoughts on what this relationship means and how it applies to modern society
