    Author Bette Lee Crosby’s "Spare Change" is a quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life, madcap adventures of a young boy, and a late change of heart that made all the difference in the life of an unusually independent woman.

Blinded by love and trusting that a man ten years her senior is beyond the age of wanting children, Olivia marries Charlie, only to have him topple over dead while they're honeymooning in Miami.
