Sometimes I love a book so much that it inspires me to explore the setting. Other times, I am traveling anyway and I happened to have read a book that takes place where I am going.
Jojo Moyes is a powerful writer. Her book was so complex and full that I wanted to learn more about the pack horse librarians of Kentucky. I researched different areas and found a wonderful little mountain town, Beattyville, KY.
Delia Owens is simply masterful in her literary grasp on nature. This book transported my mind to the marsh and I just wanted more! I loved every moment of this journey to Southport, NC. It really is a magical town and so reflective of Where the Crawdads Sing.
