Hennie Comfort is eighty-six and has lived in the mountains
of Middle Swan, Colorado, since before it was Colorado. Nit Spindle is just
seventeen and newly married. She and her husband have just moved to the high
country in search of work.
It’s 1936 and the depression has ravaged the country and Nit
and her husband have suffered greatly. Hennie notices the young woman loitering
near the old sign outside of her house that promises “Prayers For Sale.” Hennie
doesn’t sell prayers, never has, but there’s something about the young woman
that she’s drawn to. The harsh conditions of life that each have endured create
an instant bond and an unlikely friendship is formed, one in which the deepest
of hardships are shared and the darkest of secrets are confessed.
Sandra Dallas has created an unforgettable tale of a
friendship between two women, one with surprising twists and turns, and one
that is ultimately a revelation of the finest parts of the human spirit.
