Plank Road Summer. That’s it. That’s the title of our first book. Book, not manuscript.  For almost ten years, our mantra has been “We’re the Demuth sisters – we’re writing a book.”

Change that to past tense – we’ve written a book, found a publisher, and will see our book in print in May 2009.

Now, I actually began the book 30 some years ago. As a child, I tried to imagine what it might have been like to live in our old farmhouse in the 1850s, the years of the plank road. In 1999, my older sister Hilda suggested we write a plank road story together.

What a journey it has been! Write, research, rewrite, rejects; repeated. But now we can rejoice in anticipation of our book release party.

We’ll share more about plank roads and our writing collaboration in future posts.
