When I started writing The Vision of a Mother’s Heart, Isabel was almost ten years old. I tried to keep the story as close to the stories my Grandmother Isabel (Nannie) often told me through the years.
I often held a photograph of her sweet mother as I listened and could almost see the scenes enfold before me. However, as the Isabel in the story grew older in the book, I felt sad to leave that childhood stage behind and felt led to write stories about “Little Isabel” in this blog.
My friend, who is a photographer colorized the picture of my grandmother and we played around with covers for an e-book. While I was contemplating the possibilities, my friend was posting pictures of her adorable little granddaughter. She was so cute, I practically squealed, “AAAhhhhhh, so cute!” and with her cute smiles and poses, inspired stories for Isabel when she was little. So, I will try to post a Little Isabel story at least once a month.
