American girl who grew up in Argenta, Arkansas, during the 1930s and
’40s. As a young child, she exhibited qualities and behaviors that were
uncharacteristic of children her age. She was always cheerful, loving, and
kind to everyone with whom she came in contact and wanted to befriend
them regardless of race, color, or age. Her motto was “People are just
people with me.”
One day, she overheard a disclosure by her mother regarding the
circumstances of her birth and a statement that God must have saved her
for a special purpose. Lilly Mae took it to heart and set out on a spiritual
journey to find God’s purpose for her life.
The author presents this story (as with her previous book) in a manner
that will take you on a roller coaster of emotions—intrigue, sadness, joy,
laughter, and tears—as Lilly Mae went through church hopping, jobs,
baptisms, love, marriage, disappointment, and finally self-discovery.
