It was a pleasure to work with author Lisa Wingate for January's Costco Connection book club feature about her bestselling historical fiction, BEFORE WE WERE YOURS, in which a dark secret connects the Mississippi River to a wealthy family's long hidden history. Wingate describes her research into the culture of the shantyboat people, who lived on small boats and traveled the Mississippi during the Great Depression, and shares a family recipe she imagines her characters would have enjoyed.
