Goodreads asked Sigrid MacRae:

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

Sigrid MacRae Two troves of letters, those of my young father whom I never knew, and those of the young mother whom I new only as an indomitable survivor, a refugee, hardened by loss, war, and hardship. Both gave me astonishing pictures of people I had not known. It was up t me to find out how life and history shaped them, and where that left me.
