She proved her resolve by submitting a poem to her school magazine. People who associate the author with her strong religious beliefs might be surprised to learn that she was part of the Methodist Church but left it during her teenage years.
She also temporarily abandoned her writing ambitions to become a dentist like her father. Eugenia was a self-proclaimed atheist during her time at Ohio University. However, despite becoming the only woman to enroll at Northwestern Dental School in 1935, she couldn’t shake her passion for writing.
Some of her friends were surprised when she joined ‘In Care of Aggie Horn,’ an NBC radio serial in 1939. This was just the beginning of her illustrious writing career. She stayed with the radio serial until 1942 before jumping to ‘Joyce Jordan, M.D’ (Proctor and Gamble).
Her radio production company (Eugenia Price Productions) developed many serials in the following years. By the time she joined WGN Radio (Writer/Producer/Director), the author had abandoned her atheism in favor of Christianity.
She wrote about her newfound faith in ‘Discoveries Made From Living My New Life,’ which Zondervan Publishing published in 1953. Eugenia was already a household name by this point because her show on WGN Radio was incredibly popular. In fact, she spent several years giving lectures all over the United States and Canada because of her show.
Her star rose one step further when ‘Discoveries Made From Living My New Life’ came out and turned her into a renowned inspirational writer. The books she wrote after encouraged readers to embrace Biblical teachings while rejecting advancements in psychology and analysis.
Her historical romances were equally successful, turning the author into a bestseller with millions of local and international readers. Eugenia’s most ardent fans speak fondly of the events that inspired the St. Simons Trilogy.
A book tour was taking the author from West Virginia to Florida in 1961 when she decided to stop in Georgia with a friend and immediately fell for the island of St. Simons with its moss, oaks, and expansive marsh.
Christ Church was the crowning jewel of this discovery. It had fallen into ruin until Anson Green Phelps Dodge Jr. came along and restored it. The investigation Eugenia undertook to determine the motivations driving the renovation led to her first St. Simons book.
Despite the success of her fictional works, the author continued to write inspirational books. She passed away in 1996. The cause was congestive heart failure.
Best Eugenia Price Books
The author was an avid baseball fan. Initially, the Chicago Cubs were her team. She replaced them with the Atlanta Braves after moving to St. Simons Island. Eugenia’s best books include:
Savannah: Mark Browning made a drastic decision at 20. He renounced his father’s fortune and ran off to his mother’s birthplace. At the time, he was unaware of the remarkable ways in which the two women in Savannah would change his life.
The orphan had a pure love for Eliza McQueen Mackay, one he couldn’t express because the beautiful woman was his mentor’s wife. Meanwhile, Caroline Cameron’s grandparents had saddled her with a secret that tormented them for half a century. Mark will soon learn why that secret affects him.
In time, he will face the ghosts of the past and the demons of the present. If he survives, Savannah will become his one true home.
Lighthouse: ‘Lighthouse’ is the first novel in the St. Simons trilogy. The story it tells is set in the 1800s during the United State’s earliest days. Conflicts between state and federal powers are still rife, and James Gould is trying to make a name for himself.
He hopes that building a lighthouse on the island will make his dreams a reality. But surviving in the 1800s means confronting many complex hypocrisies. For instance, James has a black friend he reveres.
And yet he owns slaves. James spends the novel wrestling with his pride, and the social and religious quandaries that challenge him at every turn, all the while fighting to keep his wife happy.
