My One True Love – Online Research

Author’s Note:

Below are links to some of the research material I accessed during the writing of My One True Love. PLEASE NOTE:

CLICK LINKS AT YOUR OWN RISK.

January 24th, 2021

Each link worked at the time I accessed it, and my browser security app did not detect a problem. I cannot guarantee that is true today. I share these for your interest, and to show that though the story, its characters, the Sugar Hill estate – and even the county of Bellman and town of Quellentown – are fictional, the events, lifestyles, setting, social structure, and attitudes, find root in reality.

Thank you so much for reading My One True Love. If you haven’t yet read it, you can read Chapter 1, and access buy links, through the button below:
