Nice story, trite & inaccurate
Nice story, ok writing, a decent read with a nice ending. More detail would have been nice, I felt that the years were rushed in places. However, I find it extremely distracting when an author cannot do simple research. Kitty puts plastic pants on her baby in the 1920s. This product was not available until the 1950s. It is simple research that could have been done in a 30 second google search. This author has lost all credibility with me for this one simple error. Pure laziness? Errors lie this are distracting and extremely irritating yet so easily avoided.
