Research and Inspiration 

The Widow Nash opens in 1904, and while I wrote, I covered my office walls with images from the period, many of which turned up as chapter openers. They opened my imagination, goosed me through writer's block, and acted almost as epigraphs. Here are few favorites; I'll add some images and essays over the next few months.
