Item description for Lossie by Nellie Mae Batson...

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams, says Cora, the loving housekeeper, to Lossie, who lives in the hope of such a future.

Lossie is a woman of rare courage, a woman who defies the norms of society in the early 1940s to bear a child out of wedlock. A woman whom fate conspires to keep away from the one man she loves. A woman who, despite being deprived of the one love she pines for, fills the world around her with love and compassion, earning the love and respect of her fellow human beings. A woman whose faith in her abilities and in the power of love helps her overcome the vicissitudes of fate as she rises from her humble origins to establish a business empire all by herself, all the while waiting for her love to return.

Lossie is a tale of rare courage, a tale of compassion, understanding and, above all, of love that conquers all because it dares to believe in itself despite the ravages of time. Will Lossie's love ever return to her? Or will she carry the cross of betrayal, finding succor in her work and her family around her?

Reviews - What do customers think about Lossie?

Wonderful book.......Wonderful author  Dec 3, 2003
Lossie is truly one of the best books I have ever read and I am an avid reader!! The author keeps you turning pages nonstop and nothing in the book is predictable. My eighteen year old daughter also loved the book and included it in her senior anthology this past year. We were also able to meet Nellie Batson in her home in Snead's Ferry and have become great friends with her and her family. Oprah really needs to discover this delightful lady and feature Lossie in her book club. Buy this book and read it once a month. You'll really love the story with all it's twists and turns and feel like you are living in Snead's Ferry next door to Lossie.
 
Lossie  Oct 24, 2003
While visiting family in Sneads Ferry N.C. I was reading Lossis which I could hardly put down when I had the opportunity to meet the author. She is as delightful as her book. I purchased two more books from her to give as gifts one for my grand-daughter and one for a special friend. She is truly a great author and keeps her readers wanting more and is
a wonderful book to give to a young person to read.
 
Lossie  Sep 11, 2002
Lossie is an epic tale that caresses you softly and then grips you with intrigue. You can almost smell the salt in the air and feel the breeze in your hair as you settle into the small fishing village of Sneads Ferry. Love, anger, sorrow, achievement, happiness, treachery, bewilderment, forgiveness, fullfillment ..., it's all here.
 
Holding Stedfastly To Your Dreams  Aug 17, 2002
The passion of each day of life creates within us a special zeal to keep pressing on. Our dreams, our plans, our hopes are what lie within each of us. Lossie knew of such emotions and lived life fully. She was an inspiration to all who met her. Her inner beauty was truly revealed to the reader. I truly enjoyed the book. To the author, I express my gratitude for a great story that will inspire the lives of many.
 
A SUMMER MUST READ  Jun 29, 2002
WHAT A DELIGHTFUL JOY TO FIND AND READ THIS STORY. THE AUTHOR PUTS AND KEEPS YOU IN SNEADS FERRY - WITH PICTURESQUE DESCRIPTION AND WARMTH OF THE CHARACTERS AND SURROUNDINGS. TAKE LOSSIE WITH YOU TO THE BEACH, TRAVELING TO WORK, AT BREAK TIME - YOU WON'T WANT IT TO END. LOSSIE AND HER FAMILY WERE MADE FOR A TV MOVIE OR SERIES.
