I've never seen a book of fiction printed this way. Quite unique. I found the story often amusing, though sometimes hard to follow. Poor Mr. Adams was beset with health and spousal issues, but he is fortunate to have an understanding employer. His daughter, the star of this show, has to grow up. It can be difficult, but it works out. This could easily be quite depressing, but the writing is light.
