Amazon's description:
"The Alice Munro of Canadian childrens publishing makes her stunning debut in adult fiction with As If by Accident, a story about two people whose lives become intertwined by a series of unexpected circumstances. When Val Hudson discovers her husband of 11 years is killed in a car accident, the life she once knew comes to an end. Struggling with guilt and grief, she searches her past for meaning. Enter Gus, a screenwriter turned novelist, who bases his second book on Vals story after reading about it in a local newspaper. Through a series of coincidences, their lives intersect and chance encounters turn into fortuitous twists of fate.Governor Generals Award-winning author Julie Johnston skillfully weaves together the lives of two people touched by tragedy. As If by Accident is an impressive debut novel written with gentle wit and grace from a masterful storyteller."

A tale about grief and guilt. While the plot is predictable, the characters are engaging and the emotions are honest.

I enjoyed this story, despite the coincidences/predictability. Guilt and grief play a part in all the characters lives to some degree.

I really enjoyed this story of love, death and the character's role in those deaths. I liked how the two characters lives came together. I am surprised this is not on any wishlists. I think it would be enjoyed by many.
