Welcome friends! Thank you for stopping by,

I'm Penny Frost McGinnis, writer of small-town romance with a dash of mystery and the promise of hope, uplifting devotions, and book reviews. I'd love for you to sign up for my monthly newsletter, where you'll find encouragement, hope, and book news.

I am in awe of the incredible, natural world God has created. A walk in the woods, a visit to the water's edge, a pause to admire a bloom in the garden, and a moment to listen to the birds' tweet inspired me to pen the devotions in this book. I believe my first genuine connection to God happened as a child. I had wandered outside, on my parents’ five acres, with woods and a pond, and observed the natural world. From those experiences, I learned to appreciate God’s creation and listen to Him speak to my heart. I hope as you read these words, you'll be inspired and pause and contemplate nature as God’s amazing gift.



Caught up in the mysterious disappearance of her father, will fifty-four-year-old Marigold commit to Johnny and embrace love late in life, or will she let the past keep them apart?

When Marigold Hayes turned fourteen, her mother died, and her father went missing. For forty years, she has searched for her dad and lived a quiet life on Abbott Island, until she met Johnny. As her love for Johnny grows, her sorrow from the relentless search for her father breaks her heart. She begs God to help her move forward with her life before she has no love left to give. Then three mysterious strangers show up who could change her life.

Johnny Papadakis moved to Abbott Island ten years ago. His ex-wife had pushed him away and discouraged him from having a relationship with their daughter. After years of hard work, his restaurant flourishes, so does his relationship with Marigold. As he seeks Marigold's hand in marriage, his daughter shows up on his doorstep, looking for a place to call home.

Can Marigold and Johnny settle the past and move toward the promise of a blessed future?

Tired of being a pawn for her father and an emotional punching bag for her ex-boyfriend, Sadie Stewart escapes to Abbott Island where she spent summers with her grandparents. Would the love and faith she learned from them be enough to fuel her new life? She wants to believe God's promises, yet broken trust holds her back.

Joel Grayson left the island long enough to train at the Police Academy. The community trusts him, even though he's failed. When he finds Sadie at her grandparents' cottages, his heart skips a beat. He'd love to get to know her again, but no one needs to share the hurt he harbors. 

When Sadie discovers someone is sabotaging her future, she seeks Joel's help. As they are drawn together, will Joel let down his guard and let her in? Will Sadie trust the man who loves her and the Father Who cares?
