Before the Abram's Daughters series, your previous books were all set in the present. What prompted you to write about a different historical time period?

I have been captivated by the wooded, rural area of Gobbler's Knob which is an actual location in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, just east of Grasshopper Level, also a quaint-sounding, real place. My father would often go to Gobblers Knob to buy the Thanksgiving turkey for our family, and I remember us driving in that area when I was a little girl. Because I knew Gobbler's Knob had changed drastically in the past decades, I wanted to write about it as it was in the late 40s into the mid 60s, which is where the series will pretty much end.
