Fragile Blessings by Susan M. Baganz is the story of how a family is formed out of tragedy. Grant and Lily lose their unborn child and experience the grief in different ways. Shortly after the loss of their little boy, they learn of three children who just lost their own parents in a house fire. Grant tells the pastor that they will take the three children, even as Lily feels betrayed that he is trying to replace their lost son. Conceding to take the children and do her best for them, Lily sets out to care for the children but says that while she will care for them doesn't mean she has to love them. As Grant and Lily set about showing the children love and bringing them into their faith, they find that there are distant relatives who want the children. Grant and Lily have adopted the children but will the distant relatives take that as the answer or will they try to take the children? Can Lily learn to love the three little ones as if they are her own? Can Grant keep his family safe?
Fragile Blessings by Susan M. Baganz shows that family isn't always blood. Set in a time when orphans didn't always find loving families, Fragile Blessings shows that even in tragedy you can find a blessing and be thankful for what you have and what you receive, even though you don't understand why things happened the way they did. Grant and Lily are easy to relate to with their grief and then joy at first losing their son and then gaining a small family. Fragile Blessings reminded me to be thankful for what I have and that family isn't just those that share your blood, but those who you decide to love. Fragile Blessings shares a message about love and family that many people could learn from. I will be watching for more books by Susan M. Baganz.
