  • Ilana is relieved to get a summer job, but she wonders if she’s made the right choice when the Divine Relief Temp Agency sends her to Tabby Fabricant Textiles, where she meets the three unusual sisters who will be her supervisors. Tabby, Dimity, and Georgette refer casually to work that they’ve been doing for the past several centuries, brandish extremely sharp scissors, and seem to know every detail of Ilana’s life. When she is given an unusual typing assignment, Ilana wonders aloud why a textile business would be issuing death certificates. Georgette calmly replies, They’re not death certificates, dear….They’re death receipts. We’re the Fates. It’s what we do. Soon Ilana discovers that everyone employed by the agency works for the gods or the heroes. Learning that she isn’t the only one with a bizarre job gives her the impetus she needs to persevere through a summer filled with unusual experiences. She also becomes a close friend of Arachne (currently residing in her web at Tabby Fabricant Textiles) and weathers her older sister’s frequent wedding-planning anxiety attacks.
