Claire North Synopses: The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August is a standalone novel by Claire North. Harry August is on his deathbed – again. Regardless of anything he does or any of the decisions he makes, following death, Harry always returns to where he began, a child with all the knowledge of a life he has already lived several times before. Nothing ever changes. Until now. As Harry nears the end of his eleventh life, a little girl appears at his bedside. “I nearly missed you, Doctor August,” she says. “I need to send a message.” This is the story of what Harry does next, and what he did before, and how he tries to save a past he cannot change and a future he cannot allow.
