And will their future together be eclipsed by the mistakes of yesterday?

Poor narration

This is an excellent story about love and loss and parenthood, marred by pretty dire narration. Dozens if not hundreds of words are mispronounced or misread, from Thomas Aquinas ('Aquinnius') to cul-de-sac ('coldy-sack') to bought ('brought'). And as for the accented characters - oh dear.
