Covenant Child by Terri Blackstock
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.
This is the story of salvation, a beautiful story of how Jesus is waiting for us to come to Him. Blackstock has written another fast paced page turning novel, I read it in one afternoon. A story of love, faith, trust, very encouraging.
What the twins go through is absolutely heart breaking. Too much for anyone to have to go through. The grandparents are pure evil and then when Kara thinks she is leaving their filth and control she walks right into the arms of evil again. It's sad what she must endure before she opens her eyes to the truth.
I received an ecopy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
