PRAYERS FOR SALE
TITLE: PRAYERS FOR SALE
AUTHOR: SANDRA DALLAS
This is a most charming book and a heartwarming read, despite it being set in a cold and inhospitable location.
When Hennie Comfort first sees Nit Spindle she is 86 years old and has been living high up in the Rocky Mountains since before it was Colorado.
Nit is only 17 and has recently moved to Middle Swan with her husband after losing a baby girl. Now she is standing outside Hennie's house looking at a sign that says "Prayers for Sale."
Hennie never takes money for her prayers, but does invite the sad and scared looking girl in.
Soon, a deep friendship develops between the two women as Hettie introduces Nit to life in the town and shares stories with her.
Together the two women find healing, new opportunities and hope.
This was an inspiring and easy to read book. Maybe it all ended on a bit too much of a high, but I felt the two women deserved it, and found it very satisfying.
