Join us March 21st at 7PM for a special reading and signing of Save Your Prayers and Rehenes en Misa with author Jules Heartly.
ABOUT THE BOOK: Throughout the novel, Save Your Prayers readers experience the previously untold stories of those who are left behind in the aftermath of tragedies, the pain they endure and the LOVE that guides them to preserve life as they once knew it.
Myla always thought bad things could happen to other people but never to them, never to her.
Head bowed, and eyes closed, the patriarch of the Vasquez family relied on Sunday morning mass to bring him peace and guidance in the week ahead. But when guerrilla soldiers stormed La Maria church with their machine guns at the ready, he knew it was not God's mercy he needed. Ignoring their prayers, Luis and all the other 180 congregants are whisked away. Luis's only hope for survival from the mountainous-jungle prison where he and others are held is his wife, Myla, who must negotiate with the guerrilla soldiers to secure his freedom while also ensuring the bills are paid and their now-fatherless children are cared for. But when Myla is the target of blackmail and her family betrays her trust, she is seemingly left without options. Only after connecting with other victims does Myla learn what she must do: go straight to the source and confront the guerrilla commander face-to-face. But will she have what he wants? Is she too late?
