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.

Really enjoyed this book and narration. One little thing...the narrator pronounces Harriet's town incorrectly. Sequim is pronounced like Squim, not "Seaquim". I think it's important to say this correctly.
Otherwise, wonderful!
