The main characters are strong women and non-traditional, according to the mores of their times, and the story chronicles the shifting politics of race and gender within the details of their lives. Hinnefeld's novels have become staples of local book groups, with whom she has joined in discussions during her book promotions. Hinnefeld also plans to share a list of favorite titles by other writers as book group recommendations.
