The Lutheran Ladies’ Circle: Plucking One String

If you’re looking for a sweet book about dealing with change–this isn’t it. But you will laugh, and maybe even learn something about yourself, as a cast of lively characters carry you through conflicted times.
The Lutheran Ladies are sassy, have strong-spined opinions, and have stepped out of your office, your kid’s soccer club, or your church to live on these pages. They deal with change–sometimes poorly–but with humor and heartache, they’re on life’s journey.
In Book One: Plucking One String, Vera Henley has pulled the strings of the Lutheran Ladies Circle for years; now everything has unraveled. Traditions are changing, even the annual rummage sale can’t escape modernization. And the independent Circle women are cheering the changes–all except for Vera. Her humorous efforts to stop time time are often heart-breaking. And when her high-maintenance, crazy aunt introduces even more rebellion and upheaval, Vera is forced to pick through the chaos and choose: Which threads of change should she pluck–and which should she let go?

  1. The Church Ladies vs Vera Anyone who has ever lead or been on a committee will tell you that this book it the honest truth. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a Church committee, PTA, whatever – you will know these ladies well. You probably ARE one of them but may not admit it! 

  2. I never knew that about Lutherans! I thought that Lutherans were nice ladies, but then, I’ve never been one (Lutheran, not lady). The tongue-in-cheek humor and deep spirituality of the story touched me deeply.The message that we can change, that we can apologize, that people we disagree with can still be our closest allies is one that is not often heard. I appreciated it greatly.

  3. A great ending! This book is a surprise. It’s honest and realistic, and will have you in stitches. While it centers on a group of ladies who volunteer for a Lutheran Church, anyone who’s ever worked on a committee can relate to it. It’s an honest and realistic, well written account about the changes that happen in people’s lives, ready or not. A little slow to start, the surprise ending and unexpected friendships formed along the way make this book well worth the read. I love these characters! I can’t wait for…
