Eugenia Price is an American author of fiction. She was born on June 22, 1916, in Charleston, West Virginia. Her parents were Walter and Anna Price. Her father was a dentist. At age ten, she entered a poem in for a literary magazine at her school after deciding that she wanted to be a writer.

She was raised to belong to the Methodist Church but left it by the time she had graduated in 1932 from high school at the young age of 15. However, she ultimately decided to take a break from writing and become a dentist just like her father was and take up the family trade.

Eugenia Price went to Ohio University for a total of three years. She became an atheist at this time and went on to enroll in Northwestern Dental School, where she was the only woman admitted for that year. For a period of two years, she continued to study dentistry. She was hired to work on an NBC radio serial in 1939 called In Case of Aggie Horn.

Price continued to work for the show for three more years, at which point she left NBC for another television show. Price went to work for Joyce Jordan, M.D., another radio show that was sponsored by Proctor and Gamble. While working there, she founded a television and radio company of her own in 1945. She worked on Joyce Jordan until 1946. She named the company Eugenia Price Productions and got to work developing more serial radio shows for Proctor and Gamble.

However, writing continued to call to Eugenia Price even though she was working quite hard to get into the field of dentistry. She went through a huge life change in 1949 as well. She gave up her views of atheism and became deeply committed to and involved with Christianity. Price briefly considered changing her career. However, she ended up taking a position offered to her at WGN Radio to work as a producer, writer, and director for the radio serial Unshackled. The show was so popular that she went on to develop a lecturing career that took Price across the United States and Canada for years.

Price proved to be unpredictable as she promptly started up another career on the early side of the fifties. It was then when an owner of Zondervan publishing company approached her. She was able to publish a book that chronicled her discovery and a new commitment to Christianity in 1953 called Discoveries Made from Living My New Life.

This novel helped her enter into a career as an inspirational writer, and Price composed several other inspirational novels that dealt with everything from self-help to advice to women and books that encouraged their readers to turn to Christianity and away from recent advances or claims in psychology that have an influence on their life. Even though they were published quite some time ago, many of them are actually able to be found as they are still in print.

Price found an even larger audience when she started to branch off into creative fiction writing. Price released a few historical romance novels that were set in the southern region of the United States. They were a pretty big hit and the novels were praised for their ability to blend stories of love and tragedy with the events of a region and its history.

The Beloved Invader was Price’s first foray into a historical romance novel. The book was actually inspired by a visit that she had to the Saint Simons Island in Georgia and Price decided to base the story on one of the inhabitants of the island in the nineteenth century. This book was released in 1965 and New Moon Rising and Lighthouse quickly came out after. Her historical romance novels proved to be some of her most popular work as it propelled her novels into the personal libraries of millions of readers as well as launching her onto the bestseller lists and establishing price as a serious literary presence.

Even though Price ended up writing in a number of different genres, it ended up being the romance novels that were the most well-received and gained her the most fans. She passed away in Brunswick, Georgia, of congestive heart failure on May 28, 1996. She is buried in Frederica at the Christ Church Cemetery. Her books have sold well both locally and internationally, as the novels were translated into over a dozen languages. She is the author of the St. Simons series, Florida series, Savannah Quartet, and Georgia Trilogy.

Lighthouse is the debut novel in the St. Simons series in this exciting story from the bestselling author Eugenia Price. This book focuses on the main character of James Gould. He is a young man that was raised in the post-Revolution North.

James has dreams of designing a lighthouse and then eventually building it. After a long time of longing, he finally realizes his dreams of building a lighthouse in Georgia. It comes after a lot of hardship and conquering of obstacles, but he finally does it. What’s going to happen? Pick up Lighthouse and find out!

New Moon Rising is the second novel in the St Simons series. Horace Gould is the main character in this charming historical fiction novel from Eugenia Price. Horace has come back to St. Simons to live for a while. He’s not expecting to fall in love while he’s there, but that seems to be what is in store for him.

Deborah Abbott is his beautiful neighbor that is even lovelier than he could have hoped. She seems to like him too, and Horace quickly becomes one of her closest friends. They get along just fine, even though there is a significant difference in their age range. But can a difference in age determine how in love you are with someone? Even though Deborah is falling for this mystery man, she has some concerns that are holding her back from trusting him fully.

It’s important to her that she finds a partner that shares her spiritual views. Deborah knows that there are rumors about his past flying around, but that’s not what makes her sad. It’s the lack of faith in his life that is giving her grave concerns about getting involved any further. Can she get over it, or will there be a chance in Horace? Pick up this exciting book from Eugenia Price to find out!

    I fell in love with this writer with the very first book. I’ve read all of her series and have passed them on to many friends who love the books, have visited St. Simon’s Island, as I have. I do not feel that Eugenia Price has received the accolades she should. The in depth studying she did, the excellent writing, the wonderful characters … I cannot praise her books enough!

    I read The Burden is Light off my mom’s bookshelf as a young woman, intrigued by the title and the story of a woman who had turned to Christ and found such peace there, as had I.
    Later as an adult I discovered the Savannah Quartet also by taking a book from my mom’s shelf! It was spellbinding, but alas, at the end I discovered I had just read (To See Your Face Again) the second book of a quartet! I was faced with the decision of going forward or back!! I went back to the first book and quickly completed the series, even though they were the thickest library books I had ever read!
    I would categorize them more as historical fiction than romance, personally, since Eugenia Price was so thorough in her study of the actual history she was portraying, and has real people in her stories, around whom she so artfully weaves her fiction.
    Thank you for this site! I just discovered it!
    PS. We have relatives who own a condo on St Simon’s Island, so we have visited Price’s grave there, and climbed the stairs in the current lighthouse.
