Authors are always a few steps ahead of us . . we’re just finishing up My Daughter’s Legacy and Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould are working on The Amish Quilter! See a snapshot of Mindy’s WIP below and learn more about My Daughter’s Legacy.
Meet two women in different eras but both with unfailing conviction in Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould’s new book, My Daughter’s Legacy. Therese Jennings cannot abide the thought of owning slaves. But when trouble befalls her family, can she reconcile her obligations with her beliefs? Nicole Talbot’s life is back on track after years of substance abuse. But when facts she uncovers cast doubt on her family’s legacy, she must risk all that she’s gained—her fresh start, her family’s trust, and her growing relationship with a new man—to unlock the secrets of the past.
Excuse my messy desk but I’m hard at work on The Amish Quilter. Because this is the last book in the Women of Lancaster County series, some of the usual tasks—such as creating family trees, naming characters sketching house layouts, figuring out logistics, etc.—had already been done when we were writing the previous books.
My desk has a glass top with a shelf underneath, and that’s where I put those sorts of things because I know I’ll be referencing them frequently as I work. I’m not sure if you can see it, but I’ve also got my favorite writing quote under there, from Isaak Denison: Write a little every day, without hope, without despair.
