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.
