Fantastically written. Each story Henny shares of her life growing up was intriguing, the final issue weighing on her spirit she needed to resolve before leaving Middle Swan was unexpected. Loved it.

The book provided a great look at histroy, going from the 1800's to the 1930s.

Good story, compassion, some what predictible, but a good, clean read.

"Prayers For Sale" is a story about a woman named Hennie, who formed a good friendship with a young woman who moved really close to her house. They both helped each other, and they shared stories of their own lives, especially Hennie. I liked this book because it was really interesting to read stories of Hennie's life. However in some parts it was really sad. For example, when Hennie's baby died. The story is reallly well written, and I loved the good friendship that both women had, and the way they got to meet each other.
