SUMMER READ BOOK STUDY – “The Prayer Box” by Lisa Wingate

The Prayer Box Book Study @ Walton United ChurchECPA 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.

Discuss and Digest! Chat and Chew! — SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 20TH STUDY SESSION, in Bronte Hall 12:30pm
