Writing is an act of framing. A story well told is one kind of truth. Is it the only kind? Is all history subjective? Stories offer vivid images, and a completion difficult to achieve with straight documentary history. They offer a way of imaginatively engaging the past with a sense of what it may have been like to live then without knowing how it would all turn out. The stories in In the Wings: Stories of Forgotten Women literally breathe new life into these fascinating women. They are real, not fictional women; but they live again through fiction.
~ Bernadette Rule,from “The Line Between Fiction and Non-fiction”
