9 hours 38 minutes
A young woman, an old woman, and the story of a lifetime…

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, dating 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.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end. The narration was well done, the characters developed flawlessly and were easy to follow. I would highly recommend this book.

Enjoyed watching how all the characters lives entered a new beginning of life.

Beautiful! Both Iola Ann and Tandy Jo were women that from the beginnings of their lives did not believe they would amount to much, but by their mutual strength and love they did great things. The best parts of this story are the letters Iola Ann wrote to her Heavenly Father and the response of growth and strength Tandy Jo gleaned from them! Inspiring!

I read the book Before We Were Yours from the same author with the hopes it would be just as good, I was so disappointed with the book and the narrator.
