With her husband Bernard two years in the grave, seventy-nine year old Harriet Chance sets sail on an ill-conceived Alaskan cruise only to discover through a series of revelations that she's been living the past sixty years of her life under entirely false pretenses. There, amid the buffets and lounge singers, between the imagined appearance of her late husband and the very real arrival of her estranged daughter midway through the cruise, Harriet is forced to take a long look back, confronting the truth about pivotal events that changed the course of her life.

"Author Evison does an amazing job of getting into the mind of 78-year-old widow Harriet Chance. She is plagued with "visits" from her deceased husband, Bernard. When she decides to take the Alaskan cruise he had planned before his death, her life turns into a long, revealing episode of the old "This Is Your Life" television program. Susan Boyce's voice for the elderly Harriet is spot-on; she provides the careful, precise diction of a person who has lived her life weighing her words to protect her secrets. The story's narrator has two voices: One reveals Harriet's past with an honest and unsentimental delivery of a series of flashbacks, and one stays in the present to guide the listener through Harriet's awakening.
