Do you listen to music when you’re writing? Is there music in your novels? If so, make a playlist!
Music plays a role in In the Context of Love, and it helps establish the time period. The novel begins in the nineties, then travels back to the mid-seventies before catching back up to the nineties again, and pop culture references help set the tone. Just for fun, I made a playlist of the songs that make an appearance in the novel. A few of them should be familiar to any generation. If not, that’s okay. Maybe you can’t remember, or you never heard “Boogie Oogie Oogie,” but I think the title alone captures the disco era.
In the Context of Love: a new contemporary fiction about love, lust, and family secrets.
Angelica Schirrick had always suspected there was something deeply disturbing about her family, but the truth was more than she bargained for.
“Linda K. Sienkiewicz’s powerful and richly detailed debut novel is at once a love story, a cautionary tale, and an inspirational journey.” ~ Bonnie Jo Campbell, author of National Book Award Finalist, American Salvage, and critically acclaimed Once Upon a River, and Mothers, Tell Your Daughters
