A story about Lossie, a girl who grew up in Sneads Ferry, North Carolina, during World War II. Sneads Ferry is a rural fishing village adjoining the giant Camp Lejeune Marine Corps base. Her father was a commercial fisherman and farmer who distrusted military men. He forbade his daughter from having anything to do with the Marines who came to Sneads Ferry on liberty. Naturally, she met a young marine sergeant and fell in love. Naturally, he went off to war. Naturally she ended up pregnant and just as naturally, her father hid the marine's many love letters to her. The war ended and life goes on. Everything happened to Lossie except falling off a cliff and getting bit by a snake, but, in the end, after many twists and turns, true love prevailed and Lossie is reunited with the man she loves.
