    What a wonderful story! I really loved it. Tandi, although the mother of a teenaged girl and an elementary aged boy, acts like a teen. She is almost penniless, lives for parties, drops everything for a boyfriend and in the past has used drugs to escape reality. Her daughter parents both herself and her younger brother. Yet, with the death of her landlord, Iola Anne Poole, Tandi is given the opportunity to help clean out the main house and in doing so discovers the real Iola. As Tandi learns about Iola she changes and becomes a better mother and person. She has lots of opportunities to derail - her sister's arrival, her boyfriend's possessiveness, her daughter's rebellion - but as she grows as a person she learns real truth, "All my life, I'd let the ties of blood control me, limit me, define me, yet I'd ignored the ties of love."

    I highly recommend this book. I really enjoyed watching Tandi go from a self-centered terrible mother to a caring, sacrificing, community woman. And I thought the surprise ending was great.

    The Prayer Box by Lisa Wingate is an amazing story about a young mother, Tandi Reese, who flees from her abusive boyfriend in California to Hatteras Island with her two children in early March. Virtually penniless, Tandi rented a small cottage on the grounds of an historic manor house, put her children in school, and found a job as a sales clerk in a gift shop. In her free time she explored the manor house, finding prayer boxes with notes she read. Would she get caught and kicked out of her cottage? How would the arrival of her sister affect her? What bad thing did her sister do? How and why was the manor house threatened? What could she do to stop the threat? What truth about herself did she discover?

    Such a wonderful story, very well written. To think that a person's prayers could touch lives in such a dramatic way not only while they're alive but also after they've passed on makes me want to bring new vigor to my own prayer life.

    I enjoyed The Prayer Box. It was a sweet story of healing and hope. It was predictable though. I could tell what was going to happen from the start. But the story was well-written and enjoying to read for a light summer read.

    I had a hard time reading the first chapter or two until the story line picked up but I am glad I stuck with the book.  It was a wonderful story about a single mom who put her life back together with the help of her deceased landlord's prayer boxes. 

    Tandi is a single mom to her daughter and son who arrived on Hatteras Island looking for a place of refuge.   Tandi is afraid to trust all the right people and instead trusts another guy who has no time for her kids.  Thankfully there are others in the community who love her children and help take care of them.

    The people in the community are willing to help two strange children who are newcomers but didn't have the time of day for Iola Anne Poole whose cottage  Tandi  and her children rented.  While reading the letters in the prayer boxes Tandi discovered that even though people didn't like Iola Anne that didn't stop her from being generous to those around her in need.  Tandi is able to return the favor by helping

    to save Iola Anne's house.
