Here’s her response to the question, “What inspired you to write this book?” Years ago, a friend of mine introduced me to the orange groves of Orange County when we test-drove his brand-new Volkswagen Scirocco down Bastanchury Boulevard in Yorba Linda, California. We passed groves, packing houses, and Richard Nixon’s birthplace—a teeny house in the middle of nowhere. Decades later, I moved to a place near an original orange ranch and a historical romance exploded in my imagination.
Lillian in the Doorway is a swift, well-nuanced story, a perfect read for momentary escape between household chores or a mandatory reprieve from hot summer weather or cold winter clime. I must warn you that the moments may extend because this compelling story craves a luxurious read. Forget the chores, forget the dilemmas, forget the sad, bad news of today.
Michelle’s thorough research of the era sparkles in dibs and dabs: she includes verbs vanquished from modern vernacular as well as period clothing, furniture, SoCal landmarks, manners, and cars. Lillian adores her friends’ depiction of her as ‘formidable’ and you will, too. You’ll want to know what life threshold awaits her arc.
Michelle’s delightful book reminded me of a favorite series by Amy Stewart, in which strong, turn-of-the-twentieth-century single young females engage in detective escapades, too.
Michelle has an additional penname, so look for Michelle Knowden’s books, too.
