“The Secret Life of Bees,” by Sue Monk Kidd really made me feel the setting. I felt immersed in it. Thanks for the tips on where to find reference materials for bringing setting to life.
I just started reading BONE GAP by Laura Ruby….magical realism set in an unusual little town among Illinois farmlands. The setting is fabulous and pulls you right in. I also recently read WHITE CROW by Marcus Sedgwick, and the Gothic setting of a tiny island being eaten away by the sea (and the dark secrets of its past) was really atmospheric and clear. Thanks for the tips, Lori Ann!
