From the publisher:
In the late 1800s, Grant and Lily have established their farm amongst the bluffs of western Wisconsin. As they anticipate the birth of their first child, tragedy strikes. With shaken faith and grief driving a wedge between them, is it possible for three orphans to heal Grant and Lily’s heart and relationship?

My review:
For a short read, Fragile Blessings packs a lot in, leaving the reader to ponder the events of the story long after the last page. Baganz has the ability to transport readers to the past effortlessly, making you feel as though you’re in the cabin, on the farm, or traveling through the snow with Grant and Lily.

Told from the viewpoint of the main characters, readers will struggle through emotions, tense situations, tragedy, and heartache at both sad and newfound, precious and sweet events in the lives of these settlers. Using real communities and even little facts, like the round barns built there, Fragile Blessings will stroke your heartstrings. Life and love, even faith, is a fragile entity, but the ability to grow, accept that God is in control, and move on without forgetting and through the help of loved ones, is the surest blessing. Recommended for those who like a bite of an historical inspirational story with a lot to think about.
