Each chapter was 3-4 days in the life of the character. Those days always took place at christmas. Each chapter was several years later than the previous chapter. It was an interesting concept. It was obvious that the author went out of his way to try to fill in the missing years during those 3-4 days. He? did an excellent job. I will probably do a search next time I'm out to see what else he? wrote.
I have it for loan, though I need to return it to my mother when I see her around Christmas.
