A series of short, true life stories, which are the product of the travels and observations of one man. The stories are a miscellaneous collection of the funny and sad, of tragedy, love and friendship. And they are all, in a way, unexpected. Unexpected takes you on a journey from a Brazilian working on the oil rigs of Venezuela, who gets the shock of his life, to the uplifting story of a Chinese beggar living on the streets, entertaining passers-by with his songs and surviving through the mercy and kindness of others. There is a story for each of us in this book. Each one is subtly different and each carries either a message of hope for lost, or of caution for the unwary. Unexpected is just that. Just as life is and just as the course of our lives run, at times unexpectedly.
