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.

    " 170 pages into this and all I can say is, dull. I'm disappointed because I loved The Persian Pickle Club by Sandra Dallas. I won't be finishing this one, I'm ready to move on to something better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Jenalyn | 2/19/2014

    " This book had potential, but I found the author's similes incredibly trite, and her use of foreshadowing about the "event she has to take care of" mentioned in every chapter was way over-done. And the main story that connected all the short stories wasn't well-developed. Very disappointing. "
