Item description for LYDIA'S Life by Ida Nelle Daily Hollaway, Ernest Holloway & Jr. Ernest Lee Hollaway...

Lydia was born in 1894, the daughter of a poorly educated Baptist preacher. Two years later her mother died in childbirth. Her father married a widow with two older sons. By the time she was age five she was being sent to the homes of various relatives who needed additional domestic help. She received less than three years of schooling. As a young girl, she was raped by her stepbrothers and as a teenager she ran away from home. Earning her living as a waitress, she met her future husband, also a Baptist preacher. They had a courtship that lasted only a few days. Her husband went on to earn a Ph.D. and teach in several colleges while Lydia received no further education. They struggled through a lifetime of incompatibility, raising four brilliant and well-educated children. Lydia outlived her husband by about ten years and was a beautiful and gracious older lady.

Reviews - What do customers think about LYDIA'S Life?

Runaway girl marries preacher after three-day courtship  Dec 27, 2009
Lydia's mother died in childbirth in 1896, when Lydia was two. Her father soon remarried and Lydia's stepmother treated her as though she was a chore-maid, forcing her to care for the house, wash dishes, and even to go to the houses of other relatives to do their housework. She was only allowed to go to school a part of two years. Her older stepbrothers tormented her and raped her. She finally ran away from home when she was 16. A brilliant but impetuous young preacher persuaded Lydia to marry him after only a three-day courtship. In spite of Lydia's limited education, her husband earned his PhD and became a university professor as well as the pastor of small churches while Lydia struggled to learn to read. The character of Lydia and her brilliant husband are beautifully revealed as four children grow to adulthood and raise their own families before Lydia dies triumphantly in 1983.
