As a contemporary and a daddy's girl, I identified with the author a great deal and enjoyed the memoir very much. It has a nice tone and is neither self-congratulatory nor self-deprecating. However, I did not like the narrator's unnatural habit of enunciating and pronouncing each and every sound. For example, in each instance of "next to", both t's were pronounced! The stilted over-articulation was a constant reminder that the author was not the reader, and that the story was being read/recited and not told.
