Four unique short stories, Moment Defined introduces us to resolute individuals facing untimely junctures in their lives. A young shepherd finds himself face to face with brutal truths in the duties of life. A betrayed maiden sold into a king’s harem stumbles across salvation in the unlikeliest of places. A cabin boy aboard a merchant ship discovers his true nature will encompass more than a life at sea. An aristocrat loses her family and fortune before taking on a surprising responsibility. Occasionally, the gods will nudge fate, and as the ethereal exerts influence on living mortals, a cascade of personal catastrophes ensues. Bound between the beacons of compassion and violence we each find our own fortitude that has been relentlessly forged within the fires of circumstance. Collective moments shape our lives, but only a select few will ultimately define our purpose and destiny.
