A lot has happened since I last made a post here. The biggest news is that our family has grown by one! Our son was born in December and has turned our world upside down. We can’t believe he’s already five months old! (This has also slowed down my already snail-paced paper crafting.)
For now, I’d like to share another book review with you – Katie Schuermann’s The Harvest Raise is the final book in the Anthems of Zion series, and it does not disappoint. I was able to read an advance copy of the book, and it was oh-so-bittersweet.
In The Harvest Raise all of our favorite Bradburians are back, and they’re just as much fun as ever. These friends are now exploring what it means to be a neighbor to others in their families and community, and they are teaching us how to be God-pleasing neighbors along the way. This is always the best part of the Anthems of Zion series: the characters that we’ve come to know and love dearly teach us truths about our life together in Christ. Then they provide encouragement and wisdom on how go out and be little Christs in the world.
Another perk of the Anthems of Zion series is that each book includes more anthems full of rich imagery and beautiful music. You can listen to (and download!) all of the Anthems of Zion here, sung by the author herself!
Katie Schuermann’s writing has been compared to L.M. Montgomery, and I think this comparison is very accurate. If you enjoy the Anne of Green Gables series, I’m betting you’ll enjoy the Anthems of Zion. Check them out! The Harvest Raise is already available for pre-order here, and you can pick up House of Living Stones and The Choir Immortal while you’re there.
