by Lee Rice

The Life of “P” is the memoir of a mother and a nurse—an unsung hero from a small town in Virginia’s historic Northern Neck whose personal struggles, courage and heroic sacrifice should be remembered. With a keen sense of literary and social history, author Lee Rice paints a vivid picture of her nearly nine decades of life that witnessed dramatic global events—from two world wars, the Great Depression, space exploration, to the Iraq war and 9/11.

This story also chronicles the romantic steamboat era, memorable local historic events, a river-based traveling theater, nurses who worked tirelessly for $1.35 per hour and includes vivid descriptions of the natural beauty of the Northern Neck.

Join Lee Rice for a journey through history and a memorable life.
