The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby, peculiar combination of circumstances

Could you please tell me the meaning of "peculiar" in the following excerpt from the chapter Three of The Great Gatsby:

A chauffeur in a uniform of robin’s egg blue crossed my lawn early that Saturday morning with a surprisingly formal note from his employer—the honor would be entirely Gatsby’s, it said, if I would attend his “little party” that night. He had seen me several times, and had intended to call on me long before but a peculiar combination of circumstances had prevented it—signed Jay Gatsby in a majestic hand.

Thank you.
