The perfect setting
As an author, I’m always on the look out for the perfect setting. When I go on research trips I take hundreds of photos–always looking for what I see in my mind. It doesn’t happen very often that I find what I’m looking for exactly, but I did over the last weekend in May while we were in Lancaster County.
My next series, The Neighbors of Lancaster County, is about an Amish family and an Englisch family who live near each other. Only a field separates them. The Amish family lives at the beginning of the lane in a white house, while the Englisch family lives at the end of the lane in a stone house.
On the last day hubby and I spent in Lancaster County, I wanted to look at a covered bridge we hadn’t seen before. In most of Lancaster County, at least where I’ve been, the shoulders alongside the road are super narrow or don’t exist, but we found a place to park and jogged back across the bridge to the lane–and just like magic, there was my setting.
I have the rough draft for the first book in this series done. I’ll be rewriting and polishing it this summer. I’m really excited about this series–it’s very close to my heart. I’ll write more about the stories soon, but in the meantime here are a few photos.
