Concordia Publishing House and author Katie Schuermann bring the quirky flock from Zion Lutheran Church to life in the newly released audiobook version of House of Living Stones.

“The residents of Bradbury are literally going to come alive for the listeners of this audiobook. Mrs. Scheinberg, Emily Duke, Alice Gardner, Ben Schmidt—all of the characters that we know and love—are going make us laugh and cry right along with them,” says author Katie Schuermann. “I count it a great privilege to have served as both the author and narrator of this audiobook.”

Nominated for a Christy Award in 2015, House of Living Stones takes place in the college town of Bradbury where change doesn’t come often, and it certainly doesn’t come easily. So when Pastor Fletcher hires Emily Duke as the new choir director at Zion Lutheran Church, he unknowingly sets in motion a chain of events that turns the life of his congregation upside down.

“This is Mitford plus . . . where Schuermann brings the reader into the joys and some serious challenges of a small town parish in a town called Bradbury,” says Richard C. Resch,

Kantor and Professor Emeritus, Concordia Theological Seminary. “You will love the writing, the story line, the characters, and the humor. But I believe what truly excels here is this writer’s love for and understanding of God’s grace for all and what that boundless grace means in day-to-day living.”

House of Living Stones audiobook is available through Amazon, Audible, and iTunes.
