Initally, I found it difficult to follow the story line. To many adjectives. Later as the story developes it became interesting. Not one of my favorites and rather short.
I'm a Cardiac Anesthesiologist with two college aged children. I used 2 check my kid's books for appropriateness & now enjoy those books 2.
A very nicely writen short story in my view. It is rather short but has all of the makings of a large novel. I enjoyed this book emensely.
