Goodreads asked Ginger Marcinkowski:

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

Ginger Marcinkowski The Button Legacy: Emily's Inheritance came about because of the harsh reality of my first dark novel, Run, River Currents, a story based on a real abuse event in my life. My wonderful editor, Lori Higham, suggested that I might look for a good memory from that time to soften the message of that book and allow my readers to understand that I had long ago forgiven and forgotten. The memory came easily to me, as my grandparent's were a godly influence to me during my youth. I remember well the button box that sat on the top of their old oak hutch. When it rained, they often let us bring it down and pull buttons from it. They relayed many stories of faith through each button. I never realized the impact it had on my life until I began to write The Button Legacy: Emily's Inheritance.
