A Strong Frailty: Aganeta Janzen Block, is the newest book by Katie Funk Wiebe and illustrates stories from the life of her Aunt Aganeta, who was forced to live in a Siberian labor camp for eleven years. Historical and gripping, this book inspires readers with Aganeta’s strength in persevering through seemingly unbearable trials.
“A story of family and faith, and despite the book’s title, also one of fortitude more than frailty.”
-Marlene Epp, Conrad Grebel University, Waterloo, Ontario
“It is a stirring and sobering account of hardship, survival and faith. Using Neta’s own words, Katie has drawn significant insights from her aunt’s letters, which will be an inspiration to us all.”
