liked it

I overall thought it was pretty good. There was one line I particularly liked and bookmarked in my Nook, but unfortunately, the library took it back before I could write it. To me, it lacked flow in parts, but I appreciate her revealing so much of her soul on such a sensitive subject (her husband's death).

One annoyance: she alludes to physician assistants (more than once) as "physician's assistants." Surprising, coming from such a distinguished writer. Didn't her editor catch it too???
