Goodreads asked Louise Ligon:

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

Louise Ligon Hunter and I were inspired by many things when creating the general concept for the Blue Ridge Saga. Early on it started as a tribute to our love for the juicy family dramas from our childhood like Dynasty and Dallas. We were both fans of Gone With the Wind, but wanted to create a more authentic view of the South at that time. We knew we wanted the lead character to be gay and the idea of a young gay man living in one of the most socially tumultuous periods of American history seemed incredibly challenging, but a story that needed to be told.
