Goodreads asked Joan Francis:

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

Joan Francis As a student of history, I wanted to know, How did Hitler seize power? I knew most popular beliefs about him were wrong and set out to research the truth. Once I had the answer, I knew it had to be a story so people could see the real way Germans lost their freedom and democracy; not for the sake of history, but for the sake of protecting our own democracy.
