Quite interesting !

Nicely tells one of a different time and day. I would never have thought these experiences happened or existed if I didn't read this. I was blessed to have been given this book as a choice to read in a university class. Good to read it again 25 years later.

Enjoy! 🐣

Time very well spent.

Ms. Adams was an extraordinary human being and she continues to inspire us. I will certainly listen to this book again.
