I'm actually enjoying writing it (and why not you ask? - but sometimes writing can be a struggle...) - and I'm having fun with the research. I always like that part and spend a lot of time checking historical details. The year at the beginning of the book is 1936. A very eventful year - Spain was in Civil War, Hitler was humiliated at the Berlin Olympics by Jesse Owens, George V died and King Edward VIII abdicated. And this is what the fashion looked like that year. Love it!
