Although Lillie Nelson started out in the cotton fields of Mississippi with nothing and nobody, her faith in God and unwavering conviction that her life mattered, helped Lillie become the cook for President Reagan and his wife Nancy. Despite encountering racial prejudice, poverty, and years of despair, Lillie found hope in God’s promises that all men and women are created in His image.
This is Lillie’s remarkable story.
In the back of the book you will find photographs of Lillie with Nancy Reagan, President and Mrs. Reagan at his private 80th birthday party, and Lillie’s famous recipes. (Including President Reagan’s favorite meat dinner.)
