Prayers for Sales by Sandra Dallas, read by Pamela, on 12/17/2013

prayersSet in the high country of Colorado and during the Depression, this is a story of women’s strengths and friendships amid the harshest living conditions.  Hennie Comfort has lived in Middle Swan for seventy years.  She doesn’t sell prayers, but Nit Spindle, a young wife new to the area, wants to buy one for her little girl who passed away before they moved to Colorado.  This is the segue that Hennie needs to befriend Nit and over the course of the story they share their deepest hardships and secrets while visiting, quilting, and walking the hills in spring.  A few twists and turns in this story line kept me listening to this book.  It’s not all gloom and doom – lots of good things happen to the characters.  Recommended to those who like a little history woven within a story.
