This is Your Life Harriet Chance by Jonathan Evison is a fictional novel about a 78-year-old widow who, as the narrator bounces back and forth in time, revisits a variety of events in her life. At the same time, Harriet is being “visited ” by her late husband who has returned for the sole purpose of attempting to shield her from the life-threatening shock she is about to receive while on an unexpected Alaskan cruise.
I very much enjoyed the author’s style of writing. It is unique and held my interest for the majority of the story. There are a number of surprises in the novel which kept me guessing as well. My only regret about this novel is how depressing it is. It did however make me think so there was goodness in that.
