Share Article

New Book follows a woman’s struggle to reunite her family amid severe obstacles.

“Love? How does one define love?” Jenny, the lead character in author Dorothy M. Foss’ debut novel, The Greatest of These, asks. Jenny finds herself questioning about love after being forced by circumstances to work somewhere else, leaving her three children behind. Readers will witness sacrifice, love, hope, and reunion unfold within the pages of this book.

The novel begins as Jenny’s content life in Laurel Hill is shattered, and the family moves to Duluth. She knows little of what caused this misery as her husband Jonathan refuses to share his problems. The pain of the Great Depression is still at large, and Jenny can’t find work where she is. She arranges to move to Milwaukee where work is more abundant but first must find care for Maggie, David and Holly in Duluth. Life lessons must be learned by Jenny and Maggie who both yearn for the family to be reunited. But is that possible?

“For years it’s been my passion to write this story. When I retired I knew my need to care for ill or dying family members must take precedence over my plans. Health issues continued to plague us, but recently I finished my book based on our story. It allows me the freedom to write in fiction that I believe is more interesting, and I compose this in 1st person to bring readers closer to the heart and soul of my characters. Join me now as we travel to this tragic yet wonderful time in history–if folks but have the power, desire, and faith to exist,” Foss shares.

Heartwarming and emotionally stirring, The Greatest of These delves into the life of a woman who is forced to come to terms with what really matters in her life.
