Goodreads asked Lexa Dudley:

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

Lexa Dudley Visiting Sardinia I met a lot of people from the island and was struck by how religious they are. Back in 1969 when I set the novel things were very strict.
Young men and women went out on the evening promenade; they could look at one another, smile, but never cross over to talk to each other.
So into this mix comes a married woman who falls in love with a local man. It is their relationship that I found interesting. I knew what the reaction of family and friends would be, which made the story for me.
