5-Star Review of "The Choir Immortal"

Review of The Choir Immortal

by Katie Schuermann

25843223
The people of Zion are at it again. 

Two of their very own are getting married, and everyone is pleased as punch to be hosting Bradbury’s wedding of the century. Their collective joy is short-lived, however, as busted air-conditioners, melting cakes, and a trip to the emergency room intrude upon the celebration.

Yet the congregation rallies. Led by Pastor Fletcher and the stalwart Mrs. Scheinberg, they turn in faith to God’s promises of life and salvation to see one another through trying days that demand patience, prayer, and perhaps another batch of cinnamon rolls. 

Emily Duke, Pastor Fletcher, and the rest of Zion’s quirky flock return in this compelling sequel to House of Living Stones, proving that life in a small-town is anything but small.
MY REVIEW:  Who can resist a bunch of lovable choir members?   Not me!  This bunch of sweet, lovable sinners captured my heart when I read the first book in the series and this sequel certainly warmed my heart.  I was reading it on my kindle as my husband drove us to visit my daughters for Christmas and found myself sobbing.   I expected humor and did not know that this one had its fair share of deep sadness as well.   It broke my heart.  I was thinking about it later before bed as I wondered what would turn the heartache around for the characters.   Things did turn around for the characters but not without significant grieving first.
         This book is full of emotion and will delight readers as forgiveness is a key for several characters.   I rated this book 5 stars and feel sure that other readers will find it just as engaging as I did.
         I received a kindle version of this book from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
