If this is Marva Bailer's first book, then she should write another one. Her style of writing gives the vibrance of a fiction story to her observations and factoids of work routines. Rebecca Avery's narration drifts from wonderment and curiosity to dry authenticity and back, covering many emotions in between. Well worth a listen!
