Jenny Blake has a theory about life: big decisions often
don’t amount to much, but little decisions sometimes transform everything. Her
theory proves true in the summer of 1955, when fourteen year old Jenny makes
the decision to pick up a penny imbedded in asphalt and ends up stopping a
robbery, getting a job, and meeting a friend who changes her life forever.
Jenny and Miss Shaw form a friendship that dares both of
them to confront secrets in their pasts, secrets that threaten to destroy them.
Jenny helps Miss Shaw open up to the community around her, while Miss Shaw
teaches Jenny to meet even life’s most painful challenges with confidence and
faith. This unexpected relationship transforms both characters in ways neither
could have anticipated, and the ripple effect that begins in the summer of the
penny goes on to bring new life to the people around them. Download and start listening now!
