Item Description...
Overview
As a young girl, while helping her minister father distribute Christmas baskets and toys to underpriveleged families, Penny Burford's life was touched and changed. As a result, in 1965 adult Penny takes a single nickel from her husband, Roy's, overflowing mound of change on the bedroom dresser. With that single act, she changes the course of her life--and the lives of untold others. Penny has never kept a secret from her husband, but as her hoard of castaway change grows, she discovers that having her own money gives her the power to make her own decisions. And she finds that small change can eventually lead to big changes. Thirty-four years later, Roy finds a large check drawn on an account bearing only Penny's name. He is bewildered, wondering how his wife, who has never worked outside their home, managed to come by so much money. His quest to unravel this mystery leads him to other discoveries about the woman he thought he knew so well. Roy learns just how many lives Penny has touched and just how well his wife has known his own secrets all those years--and her example shows him how to begin life anew. Small Change is a deceptively simple story that explores the human condition in a rich emotional portrait. A remarkable tale of an ordinary housewife who leaves an extraordinary legacy, it reminds us of the true spirit of charity, the lasting effects of dysfunctional childhood, and the tragic self-silencing that limits the richness of far too many lives.

Awesome read!  Mar 26, 2008

will make your day! A great read for book groups.
 
a fantastic 1 hour!  Jan 3, 2007
This book was endearing and heartfelt. I liked it so much I gave it for christmas gifts. Very much worth the time (although it was only about an hour) it took to read.
 
Priceless Treasure  Jan 10, 2003
Small Change is a priceless treasure. If you like a story to read like a long talk with a close friend you will enjoy this conversation with J. Belinda Yandell. If you still believe in random acts of kindness and the power of small wonders, if you can believe in the magic of everyday lives, if you read to feel good, don't miss this book!
 
Yandell's character, Penny Burford, is an American classic  Feb 17, 2002
Small Change is all about the human spirit and how a speck of ambition coupled with a little courage can make gigantic changes in many lives. Penny Burford didn't win the lottery, didn't have a job, didn't have an eduction and had never even eaten a hamburger because Roy, her overbearing and demanding husband didn't go to fast food places. Penny was the textbook wife to Roy, having and raising his children, buying the groceries on the strict budget Roy allowed her, cooking his meals and cleaning his house, including picking up the pocket change he annoyingly dropped on the dresser daily. Then, one day she dropped a stray nickel into her pocket. Penny Burford and all the lives she touched in her small Georgia community were forever changed that day.
A beautiful book that brings new meaning to "Its not what you have but what you do with it that counts."
