Publisher's Summary

The first book in the Anthems of Zion series!
In the small Illinois town of Bradbury, change doesn't come often, and it certainly doesn't come easily. So when Pastor Fletcher hires Emily Duke as the new choir director at Zion Lutheran Church, he unknowingly sets in motion a chain of events that turns the life of his congregation upside down. The crusty church secretary, Mrs. Scheinberg, must learn to adjust her curmudgeonly ways. Zion's talented but pompous organist, Evan Ebner, must recognize his shortcomings. Emily must come to terms with her past. Even Pastor Fletcher must face reality when his world is shaken by the baggage Emily brings and by the handsome Zachary Brandt who pursues her. With its host of lovable and relatable characters, House of Living Stones will find a special place on your bookshelf and in your heart.

Loved It!

I'm an avid audiobook reader and prefer books in audio form so I can listen while I drive, work, etc. I was thrilled when I found out Katie Schuermann's House of Living Stones was being released in audio format. I just finished listening to it, and the audio version is even better than the print version. I usually prefer male narrators for audiobooks and sometimes find female narrators' voice too high pitched and distracting. But Katie's voice was smooth and a joy to listen to. Katie does sing throughout the book (since songs are part of the book's content). At first I was surprised by the singing, but as the book progressed I found the songs drawing me into the story of Bradbury's residents.

The book is a charming story of a Lutheran church congregation's life together in a small town in the Mid-West. It's full of laughs. I was listening to it while I was working, and people kept asking me why I was smiling and giggling to myself. I was sad when the book ended and I hope that Katie will release the 2nd book in the series in audio form in the future.
