A Prayer for Owen Meany

A prayer for Owen Meany mostly happens aroung the early 1950s.  A boy’s best friend, Owen Meany, believes he is God’s instrument.  An event in 1953 becomes life-changing and what happens to Owen after that 1953 foul ball is extraordinary.  What should have been an end of a friendship only strengthen this bond between two young boys; one from a family of wealth and the other a son of a granite quarry owner.
