Just By Chance
....or does everything happen for a reason?
by Harold J. Reid

Just by Chance has comedy, romance and tragedy all wrapped up in one novel! This story follows the unusual lives of four generations of the Hanson family. The beginning catches your interest immediately and the end of each section makes you want to keep reading to find out what’s going to happen next. The ending is both touching and funny. The author’s unusual and sometimes morbid sense of humour will keep you chuckling and groaning throughout. Just by Chance takes a lighthearted look at retirement homes, cemeteries, the people who show up at funerals homes, the Hanson family who try to take advantage of the funeral home, and death itself (as people do have to die and quite often in strange and unique ways).

When I read this novel, I found it refreshingly different and moving. I laughed, I cried, I moaned, and I oohed all the way through. I think that’s just about everything my husband told me to write down in my review. – Judith M. Reid.

Harold J. Reid is a non-award-winning author of this one book and has a background in just about everything but writing! He is a baby boomer born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and presently resides in the small town of Sutton, Ontario with his wife of sixteen thousand seven hundred and ninety days (but who’s counting).
