Archival research and interviews for a collection of short stories about early 19th‐century interracial relations between Danes, black Africans and African‐Americans. While in Denmark, she read from her work at the Tell-Tale Café in Copenhagen. Durrow’s research evolved into a novel, entitled The Girl Who Fell From the Sky (2010), which won the Bellweather Prize for Fiction and became a New York Times Bestseller, an LA Times Bestseller and an Indie Next Pick.
