A Blessed Child is a haunting parable of innocence lost from the internationally acclaimed author of Grace and Stella Descending. Every summer Isak LOvenstad gathers his three daughters by different wives to the windswept Baltic island of HammarsO. Here Erika, Laura, and Molly find a sense of family and friendship, although nothing can match Erika's connection to the rebellious misfit Ragnar. But when an act of senseless cruelty separates them forever—and drives the sisters from the island in shame and regret—they must leave childhood and their growing relationships behind. Now, twenty-five years later, they return to visit their ailing father and confront the specter of that awful summer.
