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.
Joyce Meyer|Emily Janice Card
