The Nickel Ring is a compelling, true love story for all ages. Author Preston Ingalls shares an emotional tale that spans five decades and chronicles childhood sweethearts whose love was challenged by physical separation, parental objections and heartbreak that kept them apart for 20 years.

The romance begins with a simple childhood encounter—6-year-old Preston teaches his new neighbor, 3-year-old Cynthia, to swing. This early friendship blossomed into infatuation and eventually matured into a deep love that remained unbreakable despite trials and tribulations.

That same year, Preston gave Cynthia a ring he bought from a nickel bubble-gum machine. This token became a symbol of their enduring love, and the gift became a gesture that would be repeated time and again through their relationship. 

Through the course of his journey into adulthood, Preston faced war and personal loss with one constant – his love for his childhood sweetheart, Cynthia. Tested by distance, their romance continued year after year, through Preston’s service in Vietnam and even a dramatic marriage proposal that ended in heartbreak.

Ingalls intertwines his own coming of age with the story of young love. From the innocence of the 1950s, through the turbulent ‘60s and beyond, the book describes the challenges of war, a close call with death and the parental objections that drove Preston and Cynthia apart.  Readers share the couple’s emotional reunions and learn how their love endured despite the miles—and years-- that separated them. 

Pull up a box of Kleenex and open a book that will tug at your heart.
