Hennie Comfort is eighty-six and has lived in the mountains of Middle Swan, Colorado since before it was Colorado.  Nit Spindle is just seventeen and newly married.  She and her husband have just moved to the high country in search of work.  It's 1936 and the depression has ravaged the country and Nit and her husband have suffered greatly.  Hennie notices the young woman loitering near the old sign outside of her house that promises "Prayers For Sale".  Hennie doesn't sell prayers, never has, but there's something about the young woman that she's drawn to.  The harsh conditions of life that each have endured create an instant bond and an unlikely friendship is formed, one in which the deepest of hardships are shared and the darkest of secrets are confessed. 
 
Sandra Dallas has created an unforgettable tale of a friendship between two women, one with surprising twists and turns, and one that is ultimately a revelation of the finest parts of the human spirit.

Praise for Prayers for Sale

“The listener is treated to a beautiful portrayal of female lives in a challenging time and place.” – AudioFile

"Dallas is gifted at creating characters that will make you laugh, cry, and sneer in distaste. Told in the regional dialect of the period, you will find yourself drawn into their world, and marveling at the amount of pain the human spirit can withstand while still retainin gthe ability to forgive." – Create & Decorate

“Reed has a lovely way with the voices of the men and women of the town, especially young Nit and the elderly, dignified but never staid Hennie.” – Providence Journal Bulletin
