I agree, James.  In fact, it was the thing that I found most annoying about her work.  But she does tell a whallop of a tale.  Imitating any author isn’t my intention.  I just wanted to follow the mechanics of how other writers do this. 

I’m actually thinking that if this author were brand new, she wouldn’t have been able to sell this book.  Or at least, she would be required to do some major re-writing.
