Until one day, she discovered eighty-one carefully decorated prayer boxes, one for each year. These boxes hide Iola's story from her youth to her last days. See how Tandi's life starts to change as she uncovers Iola's hopes and wishes, fears and thoughts of an unassuming but complex woman, a journey of faith, observations on love, and one final lesson that can change her life.
