During the war Eudora would calm her anxieties about her brothers and friends by visiting Robinson's plantation. Here she read the journals of his great-grandmother, Nancy McDougall Robinson, who came to the delta as a young bride. The journals served as an inspiration for characters and events in Delta Wedding so I think that adds authenticity to the novel's world. I read that she chose to tell the story through 9-yr old cousin Laura from Jackson because Eudora felt like an outsider to the delta too so this voice was more real to her.
