Mrs. Schuermann is fantastic at developing characters which engage your imagination, allowing you to share in the lives of the people of Bradbury. These characters feel real, they experience real-life situations, and they fail in their handling of life issues as do we all. This is not sugarcoated storytelling. Life is represented accurately, both the good and the bad. Humor and faith make this book a complete gem. You will want to buy one for all your friends, it is that good!"
-Mrs. Sheryl Eby, wife & mother
Schuermann once again draws the reader into the heart and soul of Zion Lutheran Church. She captures the raw emotions both high and low of each character and then delivers to the reader comfort, joy, and peace through hymnody, the Lord s Words, and her own wit and wisdom. And, if one listens carefully when reading a hymn, one can almost hear Schuermann s sweet, angelic voice singing the hymn, bidding the reader to join [voices] with hers.

The reader takes an adventure that mixes the joys and sorrows of life, showing that those things are not clearly distinct seasons but the regular heartbeat of life within this vale of tears. We get to witness the simple romance of new relationships but also old relationships. We walk alongside the joys and heartbreaks of parenthood and childhood. We rejoice as characters grow in the subtle and gradual changes that accompany our years of life together in Christ. Yet we also see how nothing is new under the sun and sometimes things don't change.
The Choir Immortal is a delightful story that will warm your heart and wet your cheeks. It cannot be fully appreciated without its predecessor House of Living Stones. So if you have not yet read these two books, be sure to get both. You won't want any less time in Bradbury.
This book has all the warmth of living in a small town with added humor, suspense, surprises, sorrows, joys,and just plain good fun. Read it, you'll love.
I cried, I snorted, I belly laughed. My wife had to leave the room sometimes since I wouldn't turn out the light and go to bed. For those of you who read the first book written by Schuermann this book will read like a homecoming. For those of you who haven't you won't have any problem.
The characters are so lifelike that I thought I would run into them at church. Their thoughts, emotions, and actions were so real. Katie doesn't fluff these folks up. They are just like the people that you meet at your local LCMS congregation. Warts, blemishes, and all.
The best part for me was the theology. Rock solid. From the theology of the cross to the life of Baptism given to us as sinners Schuermann was stop on.
Hoping for more from the saints in Bradbury!
As a Pastor I think one of the best things about this book, though, was the solid theology and pastoral care applied to real-life situations. There are several situations that could easily be held up as casebook examples of how to minister to someone who is grieving, celebrating, struggling. That was the case with the previous book as well. I'm reasonably certain there will have to be a sequel and I can't wait to read it.
