  2. Janet, I liked this book enough that I neglected other things in order to read it to the end. The one thing that did bother me was careless editing when it came to one particular word. A couple of times the author used the word "beholding" instead of "beholden": "I don't want to be beholding to you." My guess is that she has heard that word all her life but hasn't seen it in print, and that "beholding" was her attempt to correct the dropped "g" she thought she was hearing. I know I'm being nit-picky, but errors of that type always awaken my inner editor and take my head out of the story. Who wants to be interrupted by one word when the rest of the words are strung together so nicely?
