Feeling I needed a little more research, I have hit the pause button on my Goldlisters of Panama. That was a good move. I have gained more insight on the Canal construction having read Panama Fever by Mathew Parker, gathered helpful craft advice on how to handle my main character through Libbie Hawker’s Making it in Historical Fiction.
Meanwhile I’ve enjoyed reading together with Carol, Anthony Doerr’s Pulitzer Prize winning historical fiction, All the Light We Cannot See. I highly recommend this book. A beautifully written story of a blind ten-year-old girl’s survival in WWII occupied France and her connection to the young German soldier who saved her.
I think I’m re-motivated to continue Goldlisters of Panama.
