Prayers for Sale by Sandra Dallas

Prayers for SalePrayers for Sale by Sandra Dallas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hennie Comfort is 86 years old when Nit Spindle gazes at a sign on her fence advertising "Prayers for Sale." And so begins an enduring friendship in the high country of the Colorado mountains in 1936. Among the gold-mining dredges, brutal winters, and numbing poverty they share the heartbreaks and hardships of their lives. And, they enjoy the sisterhood of the Ten Mile Quilters.

Their story is the result of excellent research by Sandra Dallas. I enjoyed her attention to detail and her use of speech patterns that would have prevailed at the time. This story is as warm and comforting as a pair of lovingly handmade socks. I loved it.
