How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I was having a hard time keeping the characters straight, though Goldie was quite clear to my heart. Watching the relationships and connections build in this small town over time though…that was what really reeled me in. The way the friendships tethered them not only to themselves, but each other. The way their own histories seemed to come full circle by knowing not only themselves, but where they came from. The way we intimately meet each of these ladies, watch them overcome so much, and come out the better for it on the other side.
As she continued her walk, Goldie’s vision slipped back out of focus. The butterfly garden became a blur. Her head was foggy, her thoughts random. When was the last time she had a good cry? She was out of tears. It had been four decades since she watched Patrick take his last breath. Goldie became awash in a fresh wave of sadness. A longing for what was. For what she once had. She knew there was a sense of freedom to be had in succumbing to such anguish. Sitting in the eye of your pain as it draws you down onto hands and knees. A healthy episode of unabashed bawling when your spirit feels as though it may just split in two. Over time, sorrow that has been silenced for too long eventually infects even the good parts—Goldie could see that now.
