Goodreads asked Christy Leskovar:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Christy Leskovar Several years ago, I went to my hometown of Butte, Montana, for my aunt Helen Leskovar's funeral. While there, we went to visit Aunt Aila, who was ill so couldn't come to town for the funeral. That's when I heard the story about the fire on the ranch in eastern Montana, and the dead body found in the ruins, and that my great-grandmother Sarah was arrested for murdering her husband. This did not leave my mind even after I got home. Then the idea popped into my head -- I was going to find out what happened and write a book about it.
