Wouldn't You Rather Be Reading?

We meet the 3rd Thursday of each month, January - November,

Next Meeting: Thursday, May 17

We will be discussing Prayers for Sale
by Sandra Dallas.

In 1936, Hennie Comfort, 86, meets Nit Spindle, 17, just as the old woman learns she must leave the Colorado mountains that have been her home for seventy years.  Nit has lost her baby, and Hennie takes the girl under her wing, telling her stories about mountain life, stories that are as much about Hennie as they are about the historic people of the high country.  The harsh conditions of life that Hennie and Nit have suffered create an instant bond, and an unlikely friendship is formed, one in which the deepest of hardships are endured and the darkest memories confessed.
