The Praying Well - Pray That No One Is Listening
Publisher: JL OLGUIN
Sixty years ago, an evil made its presence known in a closely knit southside Chicago neighborhood. In taking the form of a sacred figure, it lured hundreds of parishioners into its house of prayer and worship and promised to erase the horrors of the time.
Deep inside that sacred place, a lair stood with a secret well that granted the prayers of these desperate souls -- at a steep price unbeknownst to them. But due to a fluke event, a young girl entraps it; and a calmness spreads over the earth for years.
Now in the present, Little Joe Rios, a young boy must cope with the impending death of his father due to illness. To save him? He seeks the help of the entity in the church. But the young girl who entrapped the evil all those years ago -- now an old woman -- seeks to stop the boy. But he must decide what to trust in, and what is most important: His family, his soul, or letting loose the evil upon the world.
