Penny for Your Thoughts

What route does life’s journey take?
When best friends lose contact, is it possible to reconnect?
Is it ever too late to find true love?

Toward the end of Vaughn’s award-winning novel Love on the Misty Isles, three characters, Sheryl, Libby and her brother Corbin, realize they had all come from the same fictional town of Crocus Plains on the Canadian prairies but hadn’t known one another. The sequel/prequel Penny for Your Thoughts returns to Crocus Plains and the life of Penny Ryan. Penny’s life journey begins with her father William’s story and the secrets it holds throughout the 1930s Depression years and World War II. Penny shares her growing-up years with Sheryl Leigh in Crocus Plains. They go their separate ways during college and eventually lose contact with one another. In the meantime, Penny becomes the summer nanny for the Campbells, a new family in town. Siblings Libby and Corbin capture Penny’s heart. Penny pursues her career as a math teacher and then principal of the high school in Crocus Plains. She becomes the siblings’ mentor and role model as they follow in her footsteps and pursue careers in education, which eventually take them far away from the prairies. Throughout her life, Penny encounters many opportunities for love, but none are the kind that last. Will her life’s journey eventually lead her to find those beloved friends of her past? Will the journey end before Penny finds that one special and enduring love?

Penny Ryan’s life journey begins with her father William’s story and the secrets it holds. Just as the 1930s Depression years and World War II shaped William’s “Greatest Generation,” the 1950s developed what has come to be known as the Baby Boomer generation—Penny’s generation.

Penny shares her growing-up years with Sheryl Leigh on the Canadian prairies in the fictional town of Crocus Plains, where they pledge to be friends forever. However, they go their separate ways during college and eventually lose contact with one another.

In the meantime, Penny becomes the summer nanny for the Campbells, a new family in town. Siblings Libby and Corbin Campbell capture Penny’s heart. Penny pursues her career as a math teacher and then principal of the high school in Crocus Plains. The siblings once again take center stage in Penny’s life when she becomes their mentor and role model as they follow in her footsteps and pursue careers in education, which eventually take them far away from the prairies.

Throughout her life, Penny encounters many opportunities for love, but none are the kind that last. Will her life’s journey eventually lead her to find those beloved friends of her past? Will the journey end before Penny finds that one special and enduring love?
