Tandi Reese needs a hiding place, but she never expected it to come in the form of Iola Anne Poole's rambling mansion on the Outer Banks. When the task of cleaning out Iola's house after the older woman dies, Tandi discovers a story that will lead her to faith, and new hope.

Tandi is a complex and engaging character as well as narrator of the tale. Much like a real person, there are things to like about her and things you hope will change. In part, this is why it's so encouraging to see her form a sisterhood with the Seashell Shop women, get to know Paul Chastain, and build a life on Hatteras after years of a troubled life.

Iola is a compelling and her story is just as interesting as Tandi's. Her prayer box letters are touching and filled with deep faith, despite her own travails. I felt like I missed out on getting to know this character, but the snippets of stories we are told works well in the story.

Lisa Wingate rounds out her story with other well-drawn characters such as Paul, a man who doesn't fit the stereotype of a romantic hero but is the kind of guy Tandi needs, and Zoey, a daughter who is struggling with the changes in her life. I enjoyed the element of The Prayer Box. It isn’t over powering or preachy. I love how Iola, through her prayer box, had an opportunity to teach Tandi about God and faith..

I will send this to my granddaughter, babypooh.
