A Penny Parcel - $16.00
Winepress Publishing. Softcover. 480 pages

"That Girl has a painful memory connected to every normal life activity and every holiday on the calendar."

In the year 1910, Luke Tanner, and upstanding social icon in the quiet but politically powerful town of Galesburg, Vermont, adopts Ashley, an abused orphan girl. Because the cost of processing the paperwork is a single cent, orphans like Ashley are called "penny parcels," seen by society as only worth that much. But Ashley doesn't want a daddy. She would prefer to remain in the security of the orphanage, where her past can remain secret. Luke's wife, Grace, and their son, Wesley, try to love Ashley and help her break through the emotional walls around her bruised and broken heart. But her inability to live up to Luke Tanner's standard of performance, as well as her tainted perception of family dynamics, isolate Ashley from those who care about her the most. Fighting his own misconception of truth, Luke begins to believe that Ashley's adoption has a much higher price than he is willing to pay. With both of them waging war on their own personal battlefields, Luke and Ashley collide. Their conflicts initiate a sovereign tragedy.

The Stevenson Series

When thirteen-year-old Leah Stevenson struggles to be thankful in the year 1830, her father teaches her a lesson that she will never forget. With drought oppressing her parents and eight siblings, financial shortage, her mother progressing in pregnancy, and difficult work in the fields of central Missouri, Leah fights to overcome her strong will. She often complains because lack of money means a lack of earthly things. The work is hard and the rest is short for the entire Stevenson family, but it often seems that Leah is the only one who notices. With a calm mother to settle her and a father who is strong enough to conquer her, the girl slowly puts aside her childish burdens.

A sudden tragedy changes the course of the Stevensonís life forever. Itís too late to regret, but not too late to be thankful. Now, even Papa has to force himself to write an entry in the cherished Thankful Book, and Leah finally realizes that, even in genuine poverty, there is something to be thankful for.
