A USA Today Bestseller
A Woman who is Superstitious to the Core…
A Boy who claims his Parents are Dead…
A Murderer who wants to Silence the Truth of What Happened.
Olivia Westerly knows what she knows — opals mean disaster, eleven is the unluckiest number on earth and children weigh a woman down like a pocketful of stones. That’s why she’s avoided marriage for almost forty years. But when Charlie Doyle happened along, he was simply too wonderful to resist. Now she’s a widow with an eleven-year-old boy claiming to be her grandson.
Spare Change is a quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about the important things in life, the madcap adventures of a young boy and a late change of heart that makes all the difference in an unusually independent woman.
With a foul mouth, dark secrets and heavily guarded emotions, Ethan Allen Doyle is not an easy child to like. He was counting on the grandpa he’d never met for a place to hide, but now that plan is shot to blazes because the grandpa’s dead too. He’s got seven dollars and twenty-six cents, his mama’s will for staying alive, and Dog. But none of those things are gonna help if Scooter Cobb finds him.
I knew from page one this author knows what she's doing. It's a captivating book from the very start, and I forced myself to pace my reading - much as I wanted to read it straight through, I didn't want to finish too quickly. I had something to look forward to, you see, as long as I could make it last.
The characters in the book are wonderful. The book is wonderful. You won't regret cracking the cover, as it were.
I loved it!
Twists and turns!
Wow. This was my first book to read by Bette Lee Crosby and I know for a fact I'll be reading more. This was such a heart-warming book. Her characters came to life- even minor characters- and I felt like I really knew them. The story had twists and turns all the way to the very last page. Great book!
I chose this book as a break from my preferred genre and found this to be a very satisfying read. Crosby gives us an interesting story with diverse, authentic characters who personify the extremes of good and evil. The protagonist, an eleven-year-old boy, is worthy of both empathy and admiration. I think most readers will enjoy the book.
