Goodreads asked Cleo Lampos:

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

Cleo Lampos My most recent book is A Mother's Song, and it is historical fiction based on the orphan trains. I became interested in the orphan trains when I visited a museum in Minnesota where the riders had been adopted. After years of researching, I wrote A Mother's Song to show the biological mothers who let their children ride the train and the women who adopted them. Of course, the girl who loves both mothers is highlighted. Accurate historical information gives this novel authenticity and heart wrenching emotions.
