“Lucky Penny” by Catherine Anderson (historical, Signet, January 2012, $7.99, 432pp): “Lucky Penny” is another Coulter family historical novel by Catherine Anderson. This book shows exactly how far a woman will go for her child. Brianna and David, the two main characters, are brought together by a fictitious story that Brianna tells to protect her daughter. Over time, she finds out how hard it is to keep the truth hidden.
In 1891, there were very few jobs available for a young mother. Brianna found one taking care of a widow’s son. When this man made advances, she kindly informed him that she was married. A bit later, he wants Brianna to write her husband and ask him to come get her and their child. He is about to remarry and has no use for Brianna’s services anymore. With her back against the wall, Brianna starts sending letters to David Paxton; a man she doesn’t think exists. For six years, Brianna and her daughter, Daphne, continue writing letters to the fictitious David. Over time, Daphne takes the story to heart and wishes that her papa would come to their rescue.
