Goodreads asked Barbara Dube Costa:

How do you get inspired to write?

Barbara Dube Costa My mother told me many stories about her childhood over the years. She grew up during the Great Depression. She experienced poverty, tragedy, hardship and disappointment, but she was resilient and determined. I wanted to write about her childhood because I thought it would inspire my grandchildren - her great grandchildren. Even my children didn't know this about our family history and I didn't want it to be lost.
