One of my friends had grown up in a very small outport, and the house that she lived in was torn down when her brother realized that no one lived near enough to keep the house in good shape. This really upset my friend, and that gave me the idea for the opening chapter of the book.
The Saltbox Sweater was originally a short story published
in an anthology, Cornerstones 5B, by Gage Educational Publishing Company
in 1999. The idea stayed with me after this five-page story
was published, and I decided to give it a book of its own.
