A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Christa Parrish wrote this book in a different style than most; however, the word choices coupled with the unique expression worked so well. Such a deeply moving and heartfelt story with characters living real lives intertwined with faith. With a fascinating storyline, I wasn’t quite prepared for the depth of this novel yet was surprisingly tugged and immersed completely in it. Reading it in a few short days, it is a book which still causes me to pause to consider some aspects, especially the value of life.
