Book Review - "Covenant Child"

Terri Blackstock's  novel, "Covenant Child," is a gripping, emotional story that will keep you turning the pages all the way to the end.

Book Description from the publishers:
"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."

Kara and Lizzie grew up having very little and believe they are worthless, when really it is the exact opposite on both accounts.  This is how many people see themselves, but really each of us is worth so much and can have have everything through being a child of God. This book is such a great story that is filled with suspense, heartache and promise!  My heart went out to these girls and Amanda and I found myself wanting to help them (as if they were real!). Blackstock has written numerous novels and this one is at the top for being the best! This is a great reminder of God's love for each of His children!

*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.*
