Author Patti Stockdale discusses her debut novel, Three Little Things. Inspiration for the book came from a collection of love letters her grandparents exchanged during WWI. The box of letters was given to Patti when she needed a project for a college writing course. Three Little Things is the story of forbidden love. As Arno goes off to war in Europe, Hattie stays behind in Iowa. The young pair exchange letters during the Great War, sharing three secrets in each letter and growing closer with each one.
