I was glad tht she wrote it after the story. I did not think she told enough of the event to warrant how it affected Fenna. But her note explain why. I think it might have been a good story in itself, though sad, I'm sure some people carried on.

I always read Author Notes! Having read Kristina McMorris's prior books, I know that she performs extensive, detailed research, so I anticipated reading more about that at the conclusion of the story. I have also watched a couple of her book tour stops that have been broadcast online & she is using a wonderful PowerPoint presentation that includes videos demonstrating some of the gadgets mentioned in the book. She has also posted those vidoes on Facebook & Instagram, so you can watch there. They are fascinating and enhance the experience of reading the book.

McMorriss's note at the end of the novel made me treasure the story even more. I truly appreciate the details and inspirations she shares. Like any historical study, the more backstory, the richer the characters and conclusions become. I admire her candid honesty and willingness to share her inspirations.

I was disappointed! I wanted Fenna to be based on a real person

I appreciate her notes. She was separating fact from fiction. They made it clear that she did extensive research for her book.
