Publisher's Description

ECPA 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.

Editorial Reviews

Wingate writes with a sensitivity and lyricism so effortless, weaving a community atmosphere with a comforting story of personal healing
With a careful eye to detail and a beautiful, lyrical style reminiscent of those of Mary Alice Monroe and Patti Callahan Henry, Wingate vividly sets Tandi’s struggles in a once beautiful Victorian mansion now falling to ruin and guarded by a cranky cat in a small town recovering from the ravages of a hurricane. [Starred review]
Relatable characters and vivid portrayals of events both current and historical create an enchanting, memorable pilgrimage into the fullness of faith and love.
Readers will delight in this gorgeously written, true gem of a novel. Wingate has a way with phrasing that makes one stop and savor certain passages because they are incredibly meaningful—not only to the telling of the tale, but to the reader’s own life. Realistic characters and a saga of life, love, and rebuilding make a gorgeous treat. [Top Pick]
Running away from her past, single mother Tandi Jo Reese rents a cottage on Hatteras Island, but when her elderly landlady dies in her sleep, the task of cleaning out Iola Anne Poole’s big house falls to Tandi Jo. Tandi comes across 81 decorated prayer boxes containing notes: pieces of a life well lived. In them, Tandi finds not only redemption but peace with her past. VERDICT Two-time Carol Award winner Wingate (Blue Moon Bay) has written a moving and inspiring story with interesting female characters and a colorful Southern backdrop. A good option for fans of Nicholas Sparks and Mary Alice Monroe.

    I really enjoyed this book. I didn't know anything about it going in. I was expecting a fluffy beach read, but it was so much more. I highly recommend if you want something with a little more substance to read by the pool this summer.

    This is a story about a single mother who flees an abusive relationship in Texas going to North Carolina where she spent time as a child. She struggles to make a new life for her and her children. When Iola Poole, whom she is renting a house from, dies she gets the job of cleaning and sorting through Ms. Poole's home. She finds prayer boxes and as she reads the prayers she learns about faith and surviving hard times. Great story and highly recommend this book.

    I did not want to put this book down! It is full of warmth, beauty, and love. Although sadness and heartache are also there, they do not win. Through the difficulties, the characters grow stronger. This is written with humor, and with delightfully vivid descriptions. I feel as if I've been to these places, and known these people. I identified with the emotions and felt as if I were part of the story; and I love a happy ending. Lisa Wingate writes beautifully.

    I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a story of hope and healing. It showed that people are not bound by the mistakes of their parents. With God's help, they can overcome.
