Let’s peek into the story world:
Pastor Linton cleared his throat. “Ruth, does God want anyone to perish?”
Ruth scuffed the carpet with her toe. “No.”
“How many people do you suppose are praying for Harry Silver right now?”
“I don’t know.” Probably none.
In the seat beside hers, Tony snorted. “Who’d waste their breath?”
Pale grey eyes held Ruth’s. “Somebody’d better pray for him, don’t you think? He is a lost soul.”
Ruth wanted to deny his words, to shout the impossibility of what he asked. She couldn’t think of Harry Silver being prayed for, being saved. Escaping judgment. The pressure inside her grew until she could hear her heartbeat. Her face burned.
So many people were hurt by this monster, and she’d let herself feel like the only one. John was right. Praying for the others would help her too.
But as for the rest of her pastor’s words … A steel certainty lodged in her heart. She would never pray for Harry Silver.
Stepping out of the story …
Did you know? The lighthouse at Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia, is a popular tourist destination. Some claim it’s the most photographed lighthouse in Canada, or even in the world. Trivia tidbit I didn’t know: it’s properly called the Peggy’s Point Lighthouse. (This and more information from Nova Scotia Tourism.)

What a great premise for a story!!! And your dialog is so real. In such a short passage, I’m pulled into Ruth’s conscience.
Thanks, Sara! I’m glad it worked!
That was an enjoyable blog chase and a lot of fun. Thanks. Sounds like a great book.
Thanks, Rose. I had fun putting the chase together (and writing the book)!
Janis, thanks for being part of the Heaven’s Prey blog chase. I know prayer is an important part of your life. Mine, too, but I can relate to Ruth’s refusal to pray for her enemy.
Does Ruth really refuse to pray? I thought she changes her mind after the nightmare.
This has been fun for sure.
She refuses at first, but the nightmare convinces her.
