    • Happy to provide the giveaway. This a true story and as stated below Davida and Augustus are my great-grandparents. There is very little known about her so I was able to use my imagination to create my great-grandmother. Thank you for your interest.

    Thank you for introducing me to Karen Ingalls and her books! I was very intrigued to learn that the author is the great-granddaughter from this union and how the union affected so many people and especially her grandfather. magenta 2 red [at] gmail [dot] com

    • My grandfather did suffer being labeled a bastard child and not having a lot of quality time with his father, Augustus. Growing up I never heard my grandfather talk about his parents, except once when he began to cry talking about his mother’s painful death. Everything regarding my grandfather’s childhood was a secret.
      I wrote the book Novy’s Son which demonstrates how my grandfather was unable to be a father to his sons because of his lack of a relationship with his father. Robert Bly wrote about the loss of father-son relationships in the best seller, Iron John.

    • There is very little known about Davida. Only her first name by birth, she was from Sweden, and that her model name was Davida. I loved using my imagination in creating her. I do have a copy of a letter from the grandson whose grandmother was Davida’s closest friend. I relied on those descriptions of her.
