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 doing it her way?
