  • rocky river readers

    Monday, june 24

    7:00 pm, church parlor

    The Prayer Box by Lisa Wingate.   When Lola Anne Poole, an old-timer

    on Hatteras Island, passes away, the  struggling young mother in her rental

    cottage, Tandi Jo Reese, finds  herself charged with the task of cleaning out

    Lola’s rambling Victorian house.   Tandi never expects to find more than a

    temporary hiding place within Lola’s walls, but  everything changes with the discovery of eightyone carefully decorated prayer boxes, one for each year, spanning from Lola’s youth to her last days. Hidden in the boxes is the story of a lifetime, one final lesson that could change everything for Tandi.
