Goodreads asked Julie K. Richmond:

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

Julie K. Richmond In The Best We Could: A True Life Experience, I had to tell my story. It consumed me; it is me. From so many years of holding it all in, it finally had to be let out. No matter what. I grew up with get over it and move on, with convenient faith, with self-doubt and never wanting to call any negative attention to myself. I've learned so much throughout my grief journey that I had to share all of the 'bad' to help make sense of the beauty in it all.
