Carolyn Williford told CA: "My motivation for writing is [the hope] that the readers would grow in their relationships with God while reading quality literature. Most topics came out of my experience—whether from my personal devotions, out family worship, or an area where we lived. Tennessee, with its many Tennessee Valley Authority dams, was the inspiration for Jordan's Bend."
