Letters to Lori

Letters to Lori shares the true story of a courageous woman’s struggle for change in a proud, close-knit community. Opal Myers, who assisted Catherine Marshall in her research for her best-selling novel Christy, describes her passion and sacrifice for the people of remote Cocke County, TN. As Opal recounts the sacrifice attached to her quest, she breaks our hearts as she surrenders all to God amidst severe trials. A war-torn husband. A battle to feed hungry mouths. Despite all odds, Opal keeps her dream—God’s dream—alive to bring hope to her resistant community and a dying mission.

In this beautifully scripted letter to her granddaughter Lori, mission worker Opal Myers leafs through the pages of her family’s history, and exposes the struggle of a mission striving for acceptance in a reluctant back-mountain community. Packed with her adventures as a one-room school teacher fighting poverty, as well as humorous anecdotes of the area’s memorable characters, the story reflects Opal’s humor and great love for her people, the mission, and its workers who changed her life.

When Ebenezer Mission closed, Opal single-handedly resurrected the mission to keep her promise to herself and God. As an inspiration to hold fast to your dreams, this book will challenge you to make a difference in the lives of those you love. Share in the laughter, tears, and legacy of her mark on history.

Reviewed by John Domino 8/9/2008
It sounds very inspirational. Please tell me more. I wrote a short story about my wife who died of breast cancer. It took 20 years.

God Bless You!
