Book Description

....The Highest Peak is a powerful and captivating memoir of a woman’s determination to push past the obstacles that should have defeated her.
There is no doubt that Virginia truly saw things differently than other people. Her intuition was a relevant factor throughout her life. She was an outspoken and misunderstood person that was eventually out casted by her family. Her dreams and goals were ahead of her time and many people just didn't understand her desire not to just settle for the norm.
Her journey takes you through the pain, suffering, loss and betrayal she endured throughout her childhood and during her marriages.
She lived by God's word and survived many trials and tribulations with prayer and her faith in the Lord.
Virginia's daughter is now telling the story of her mother's unique life. The result is "The Highest Peak" which has been taken from the actual journal notes Virginia began writing in January 1965.

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The events in Virginia Lee's life were unique and she believed that many of the things that happened to her were caused by unexplained phenomena. When you read her memoir, you'll see that she truly saw things differently than other people and you, too, will wonder if what happened to her was just coincidence...or was something else.       
    I am now telling the story of her life. The result is The Highest Peak, which has been taken from the memoir she began writing in 1965 and finished in 1969.

From the Inside Flap

     I looked around at Stanley as he stood there and I thought to myself, What have I done, Oh God, what have I done as I slowly sat down on the bed.
     The little lady whispered to me "I will always be here to help you out, don't you worry. Now get ready and get some sleep,".
     She went out and closed the door behind her. I could hear her fussing at my husband.
     "You ought to be ashamed of yourself standing there grinning and giggling like the rest of them. She is your wife. Don't you have any sense at all," she fussed.
     I sat there and before I knew it I was praying to the Lord. I was saying, "I knew it wasn't going to be easy to pray here, but dear God, please look after me in all my days."
     I thought to myself, today is Monday and I have been married for three days and I have not yet slept with my husband.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Telling of Consciousness May 26, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Kathy Lee Pair's memoir of her mother, Virginia `Ginnie' Lee, wholly and totally won me over. Bearing an esoteric premise... peering into the human drive and soul, she truly has preserved, and served, her mother's voice well.

People have devoted their lives to understanding what moves the spirit, and here Ginnie artlessly canvasses over her life sharing among `the alp' of motives, her private conversations with God. Halfway through reading I had to laugh at myself because I couldn't tell who cried more; me or Ginnie. And it's not that I haven't heard relatives in my own family speak as Ginnie. I actually could hear and see her voice. It was breathing through her words right there on each page. This was what touched me most.

Many questions may surface while reading Virginia's memoir, but none transcend the level(s) of consciousness raised. `Mr. Harrell' in `A New Beginning,' and Elizabeth `at the end' are remarkable examples, among others such as Ginnie drinking the `tainted' water. This memoir must be experienced. I expect it to be among the top ten best books I've read this year.

4.0 out of 5 stars Family can really hurt January 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
God is good. I cried a few times wondering how can people be so evil to their own? I'm glad Virginia kept her faith in God I think I would have given up.

Keep going! Those are the words that stuck with me as I read Virginia's story. She knew from whom she came and what blessed her in the midst of trying circumstances. The themes of family, trust, and love - with their happy and not so happy endings were mingled nicely throughout this book.
