Covenant Child by Terri Blackstock

About the book:

Amanda’s heart broke as she watched them drive her beloved twins away. She resolved to hope . . . and to fight for them to her last breath.

Kara and Lizzie are heiresses to one of the largest fortunes in the country. But when their father dies suddenly, the toddlers are ripped from the arms of Amanda, their loving stepmother, and given to their maternal grandparents, who only want the children’s fortune for themselves.

While even the stipend their guardians get for supporting them is squandered, the children are left to raise themselves. Kara and Lizzie grow up believing they are worthless . . . until the day when they learn the truth.

My Review:

This is a wonderful story with such a great message of God's love for us and that we are not worthless and have a great inheritance waiting for us if we only reach out for it. This book is actually a reprint from the original release in 2002. Actually as I was reading it I had realized that I had read the book before, but it was fine since it is such a great story. It is a very easy read and it did not take me long to read at all. The story is told from Kara's perspective and I really liked this style for the story.

This is not Terri Blackstock's normal type of book but she is such a great writer that she wrote this one just as good as the others.  I highly recommend this book to everyone and this book personally would be great tool in ministry too because it gives such a great real world example of the classic message of God's love for us. So many people can relate to this story and will either identify with Lizzie or Kara. I do not want to give too much away, so now all I can say is to just go and read it.

*I Received this book through Booksneeze in exchange for my honest review.
