What happens when strong-willed women get tired of one person running everything?
A sparkling, comic disregard for change.
If you're looking for a sweet book about dealing with change--this isn't it. But you will laugh as a cast of lively characters push through conflicted times.
The Lutheran Ladies are sassy, have "strong-spine" 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: Vera Henley has pulled the strings of the Lutheran Ladies Circle for years; now everything is unraveling. 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--or can she bend others to do it her way?
A good book to read. I don’t know how other pastors’ wives are but the ones I know aren’t as blatantly arrogant. But then the book wouldn’t have been written. I did enjoy this. There are some very funny episodes.
I am right!
I was raised in a small Swedish -Lutheran church on the Great Plains of Nebraska. I moved to the city when I went to the university. I’m in my 60s now and I have city friends from the East coast who forever tease me and claim my reasoning for doing things is just excuses. Thank you for putting my reasonings in print. I knew I wasn’t going crazy!!! Reading this book is like going home again!
Plucking One String
Thanks for the laughs out loud and entertaining wit of the church ladies. You could have been describing our Baptist group. There were so many words of wisdom and examples of how NOT to talk that I may have to read it again. God bless your honesty in telling it like it is! G
