  1. One reason I enjoyed writing this book was because I lost my mother when I was fourteen, and I modeled Molly after my memory of her. Also, the oil camp where the mIllers finally find hope and their healing place was an actual camp. I lived there as a little girl and then researched what it was like in the 1930’s. A philanthropist donated his money and time to building the camp after one he had witnessed in Brazil. He brought in dozens of rose bushes and trees, built a school, clinic, church, enormous pool. There were too amenities to talk about. I also found the opposite account during my research, of a camp called Boogertown. It was more the norm at the time. There were prostitutes, and the only place to meet people was in bars which were horribly run. The workers only had tents with mud and oil sludge for the floors. In Texon, we had nice, white houses with manicured lawns. It was a wonderful place to be!
