Rivkah asked Susan Vreeland:

I loved your book Clara and Mr Tiffany I loved learning about ny in beginning of century Beginning of women's rights and the triangle fire How much research and how long did it take you to do for this book Thank you Rivkah Katz

Susan Vreeland Thank you for this question that starts us off. Normally I just do research for six months. Following that the writing took two and a half years doing multiple drafts. I showed the ninth draft to my editor and we spent probably five months polishing, so the total would be about three years.
