Event Details

Join the Utah State Library and the Utah State Library for the Blind in a live online book group discussion of "Prayers for Sale" by Sandra Dallas.  

For Library for the Blind users, it is available on BARD and in Digital Book (DB), Large Print (LP), and Braille (BR) formats.  We will make more DB copies if needed.
There are copies available in USL's Book Buzz collection. Ask your local public library to obtain copies.

The story:  This is a a powerful novel about an unlikely friendship between two women and the secrets they’ve kept in order to survive life in a rugged Colorado mining town. It’s 1936 and the Great Depression has taken its toll. Up in the high country of the snow-covered Rocky Mountains, 86 year old Hennie Comfort has lived in Middle Swan, Colorado, since before it was Colorado. When she first meets seventeen-year-old Nit Spindle, Hennie is drawn to the grieving young girl. Nit and her husband have come to this small mining town in search of work, but the loneliness and loss Nit feels are almost too much to bear. One day she notices an old sign that reads prayers for sale in front of Hennie’s house. Hennie doesn’t actually take money for her prayers, never has, but she invites the skinny girl in anyway. The harsh conditions of life that each has endured create an instant bond, and a friendship is born, one in which the deepest of hardships are shared and the darkest of secrets are confessed.
