Ziva's love of coffee is double-edged. Throughout her life, she gives her talent freely to those desperate for a glimpse into destiny's promise. Predicting the future with chilling accuracy, she understands the cost and has sworn never to divine her own truth. Having fled the economic aftershocks of the Balkan war, she struggles adjusting to her new life and clings to the remnants of her past, until she meets Isaac. Against her better judgement, Ziva 'reads' for herself and what she sees will change her life irrevocably. Told from the perspective of multiple characters, Grind follows the plight of Ziva, an ordinary immigrant with an extraordinary gift, and highlights the impact we have on each other through the interconnectedness of chance encounters.
About the Author
Edward Vukovic is a Melbourne-based writer and novelist and writes for numerous publications and websites. When he's not writing about his poor parenting skills, his obsession with LEGO, the Eurovision Song Contest or fantasy football you will likely find him yelling at the television, unaware that the players of whatever sport he's watching at the time can't actually hear his ranting. Edward is married to his wonderfully patient and talented wife Vesna and is a proud, if sometimes bewildered, father to his amazing son Oliver.
