Description

ECPA 2014 Christian Book Award Finalist!
When Iola Anne Poole, an old-timer on Hatteras Island, passes away in her bed at ninety-one, the struggling young mother in her rental cottage, Tandi Jo Reese, finds herself charged with the task of cleaning out Iola’s rambling Victorian house.

Running from a messy, dangerous past, Tandi never expects to find more than a temporary hiding place within Iola’s walls, but everything changes with the discovery of eighty-one carefully decorated prayer boxes, one for each year, spanning from Iola’s youth to her last days. Hidden in the boxes is the story of a lifetime, written on random bits of paper—the hopes and wishes, fears and thoughts of an unassuming but complex woman passing through the seasons of an extraordinary, unsung life filled with journeys of faith, observations on love, and one final lesson that could change everything for Tandi.

    This was a wonderfully, encouraging book of hope and restoration of a broken relationship between a mother and her children. Realizing that the storms of life can't break us, if we allow God to direct us through the storms! Wonderful!!!

    Unique and inspiring. A really great read. The kind of story that you want to take your time reading and something that you can read and re-read. Great characters. Absolutely loved this one.

    I thought this was so sweet and wholesome. I think it was such a lovely way to experience and understand faith outside of the context of religion; faith as a way of life, as a way of living and loving.

    I have read many books by Lisa Wingate and Tending Roses is my favorite but The Prayer Box is a close second. Do you want to live in fear or faith? You must read the book if you have ever asked yourself this question.
