An honest story,

This review is from: The Lutheran Ladies' Circle: Plucking One String (Kindle Edition)
I found it hard at first to get into the story as there were quite a few characters who you had to get to know because many were all together at ladies church meetings. There was a good level of realism and honesty as the characters worked through a variety of problems and church based situations. The humour for me was not laugh out loud funny but gentle and based on life observation.
The story was a good length and there was no feeling of rushing towards the end, although the tension increased. The story highlights how church activities often marginalize God rather than glory Him. This offers an opportunity for the believer-reader to reflect on their own church behaviour. It offers all the opportunity to gain insight into the fact that particular denominations find comfort in tradition sometimes rather than a relationship with God.
