Miller gathered much of the material for Lamb in his Bosom while she was buying chickens and eggs ten miles in the backwoods. She said of her novel, "Almost every incident in Lamb in His Bosom actually occurred. Some of them I heard from my uncles and aunts, some from my mother. I got most of the local color from hereabouts, but the facts from family history and history of other families. I could hardly tell where fact left off and fancy began."

She died in "Waynesville, North Carolina.
