Jenny Blake has no idea how her life will change in the summer of 1955. But the day she stoops to pick up a penny embedded in the hot asphalt, she starts a chain of events that will transform her life and the lives of those around her in amazing ways. Jenny is swept into a friendship with Miss Shaw, the woman whose past is the biggest mystery along Grand Avenue, the woman who will change Jenny’s future forever. As Jenny and Miss Shaw work together at the local jewelry store, they form a friendship that dares both of them to confront secrets in their pasts–secrets that threaten to destroy them.

While Jenny cowers in the wake of her abusive father, Miss Shaw hides in the shadows of her own unspoken pain. If these two can overcome their brokenness and grief, they might just find the freedom they’ve been craving. And they might begin a ripple effect that goes on to bring new life to the people around them, showing how God works in the smallest details, even in something as small as a penny. . . . Because big decisions often don’t amount to much, but little decisions sometimes transform everything. Download and start listening now!

    " Meyer addresses the sensitive issue of abuse with gentle candor. A bit too 'neat and tidy' of an ending, but a realistic view of the deep hurts caused by abuse and the importance of healthy relationships to bring the needed healing. Emotionally moving. "

    " I did not know this was termed "Christian fiction", I just liked what the inside cover had to say about the story. I finished it yesterday & LOVED IT! It was an excellent story, though very heartbreaking at times, but with a wonderful "happy ending" for all involved in the story. It was about the power of God even when it seems like he's not there for us & how we may have to fight longer than we want to, but we will overcome. It also touched on forgiveness & it's healing power & about friendship in times of segregation between two sweet girls from very different families. It was an excellent, very touching story. Highly recommend & it's not that long so it's a great summer "beach" read. "

    " Finding a penny starts life in a new direction for 14 year old Jenny. Great story of how God can take away shame. "

    " This book really has its moments as it explores the life of a young girl living in St. Louis in 1955. The religious message central to the story could have been more subtle and more effectively expressed. "
