This story is an adventure, the actors speaking with a variety of dialects from the Great Depression and World War II to the peace and prosperity years, progressing from toddlers to old age; from grammar school to prep school and college to a brief business career; from medical school, internship, and residency training to a professional career in orthopaedic surgery; from setting up private practice and a clinic to retirement; from falling in love to marriage; from having children, to having grandchildren and even great-grandchildren . . . from being a girl adamant not to marry a doctor, to a lady who definitely was not marrying a doctor, to a woman who became a perfect doctor’s wife.
The Right Reverend Robert W. Estill, Episcopal bishop, retired, has expertly painted the illustrations that uplift the text with brightness and humor.
