SIGNED by the author on the title page. Fusselman's book interweaves three storylines. The first follows her harrowing and very funny attempts to become pregnant. The second is given to her grief following her father's very recent death. The third allows her father himself to speak: between chapters, we read diary entries from Amy's father written during World War II, while he was in the Navy, as a pharmacist's mate.
