I loved this book. It was a collection of stories woven together so masterfully. In the book, a new young wife, Nit, meets a much older woman, Hennie, in a small mining town in the Rockies. Nit reminds Hennie of herself when she first moved in to the area — a little lost and a lot lonely. Through their visits, Hennie tells fabulous stories of the area, and it is very entertaining.
My only complaint is that I predicted the ‘surprise ending’ on Page 109 which would be fine if the book ended on Page 110, but it doesn’t. Not even close.
The title comes from one of Hennie’s stories. At a happy time in her life, she tells her husband that she is so content that she has prayers to sell — she has nothing to ask for. I think that is a beautiful thought, and it was a beautiful book.
